Weather The Storm


Ahoy friends!

K38 is docked and riding out the storm in safe harbors all over the world. From Asia, South and North America, Australia, Europe and Africa, our pandemic quarantine is a gift to the health of humanity.

Our community was built for storms; dark nights, cold, wind and extreme hardship. We understand the loss of disaster.

We have had our hands and hearts upon it; our eyes witness devastation, been on the water and listened, heard the heartbreak with our ears, and worked with survivors and those who perished. But most importantly, our spirit and actions gifted to be a positive conduit of hope in bad situations.

We are ready for the difficulty of any struggle that nature and mankind delivers, as long as our health is intact.

This is who we are, this is our K38 family, our instructors, volunteers and qualified coxswains. These incredibly Unique personalities who can manage tragedy and not succumb to its disaster.

We are caretakers of the greater good on the wild and watery main.

Our community is a resilient one. We don’t feel sorry for ourselves, or reduce our potential because times get hard.

What we do is get stronger, gain spiritual awareness and become more determined and focused.

What do you want your finest moment to be? Will you be the person on the boat everyone can depend upon, even if harboring on shore? We believe you are that person.

Be brave. Have Courage. Take on the challenge the same way you head into the darkening storm; head down, eyes focused on the goal and a safe return to ready for the next call.

You are what is best in any human. We are essential beings who express spirit, determination and honor through service and sacrifice.


What we are not is weak. We are not cowards. We take the hard hits that everyone else is suffering with. We are a beacon of endurance. We never quit. We pray for everyone's well being and safety.

Our community has faced many challenges over the years. Wars devastate humanity and nations. It has been a long time we have not had to face such adversity. It is our turn. We can look to our ancestors and let them remind us of the things we need to do to stay steady. All generations overcome war, what we do is pay attention; quarantine.

This is the first of this type of war against our health and economy. We will not fold, cower or excuse. We will be ready to go to work, put our lives on the line like others depend upon whenever called.
Honor those who have died from this virus by being the best person you can be for what they will no longer experience. Rise up your capability and gratitude.

Meanwhile, what can we do besides support our local communities and families? Train!

We can study, prepare our equipment, assess the level of our capability and program needs. Make necessary changes and increase our capability. We can get back into our books and source material.

While we may not be on the water, we have been gifted a tremendous opportunity to reflect on our character, behaviors and attitude. Now is the time to review and correct.
