Meet The Paddler

Bob Bertrand

Robert is a local attorney who paddles with the Milwaukee group. As you can see from the picture above, he is out there year around. When I first joined the group, Bob and I were both paddling Perception Shadows. Neither of us are paddling them now.

Bob is currently in a Greenland style boat which required a bit of getting used to. Presently, he is struggling with his off side roll, a result of deep rooted psychological blocks, I am sure. More importantly, he is a soft spoken, bright man who has fought an admiral battle with personal issues. He laughs easily and is a delight to be with on the water or around a camp fire. Come to Milwaukee some Sunday morning and paddle with Bob and the rest of us.

Paddle safe...
