Orono Paddlers organizes a summer community paddling series on the Stillwater River in Orono. On Thursday evenings in July and August people and boats gather at Brown’s Beach on Bennoch Road to race an out and back flatwater course. Any boat and any paddler is welcome to join in – just for fun.
Bring your own boat and gear or just bring yourself and hop into one of the 10-person war canoes generously provided by Penobscot River Keepers. There may also be youth races, short and long courses, scavenger hunts or relays. Check our facebook page for schedule and updates.
