Long-Distance Kayaker Recounts Epic Paddle
November 16, 2011
Wareham Week: There are a lot of questions that arise when one plans a 4-month-long kayak trip across the Atlantic Ocean. What do you wear? What happens if you tip over? And perhaps even more importantly, when do you go to the bathroom?
The Boys & Girls Club of Wareham celebrated the 20th anniversary of Onset, Massachusetts, resident Richard Wheeler’s 1,500-mile kayak trip from Newfoundland to Buzzards Bay with a November 3 showing of the 1994 NOVA documentary, “Haunted Cry of a Long Gone Bird,” which chronicled Wheeler’s journey.
