Greenland in the Netherlands

On the weekend of the annual Veluwe Rally, Tom Steenbergen and Dick van Zanten organized the second Greenland kayak gathering in the Netherlands. Freya Hoffmeister arrived with two skin-on-frames and her carbon fiber Qaanaaq rolling kayak. I got to do lots of Greenland rolling practice and managed the spine roll for the first time. I got dizzy from all the rolling. On Saturday Freya gave rolling instruction sessions and did a rolling demo together with Peter Renkema. Peter, new to Greenland rolling, managed to perform in sync, many of the rolls that Freya did.
