Become a Sponsor
There is no other kayaking event like this in Northern Michigan, and it is catching on like wildfire. In 2009, Karen Marietti, Director of the Camp Daggett Adventure Center, made her way around the lake alone; the following year 9 kayakers joined her; and in 2010, her team grew to 18 kayakers. It has continued to grow each year.
