With a Paddle

Kayakers claim they have the most fun a person can have while wearing a life vest. At today's Cleveland Harborfest Paddle, they're out to prove it, as more than 20 kayak enthusiasts hit the water near the East 55th Street Municipal Marina. "There's no crew, just you," says participant Matt Eldredge. "You gotta be disciplined. It's fun, but when you need to get serious, you know it." During the three-hour event, kayakers paddle to Voinovich Bicentennial Park. "You don't have to work as hard in calmer water," says Eldredge. "It's still a workout, but with this one you can kind of just chill." Afterward, grab some food and brew.
