In 2010, Phil White created the annual Be Kind To Your Yacker Week during the first week in April. “We started this national tribute to yackers (aka kayakers) for their indispensable help and support of open water swimming,” explained the founder of the Northeast Kingdom Open Water Swimming Association. “Swimmers and yackers alike can check out the kayaker instructions page on our Kingdom Swim website.” Haiku to The Kayaker by Sgt. Jim Cowig of Newburyport, Massachusetts: smooth molded plastic an oasis of safety always at my side Haiku to the Yacker by Steven Munatones of Huntington Beach, California: at night alongside darkness on the left and right my lifeline and guide Ode to My Yacker by Phil White of Derby, Vermont: Yacker, My Yacker, wherever we roam You water and feed me and guide my way home Without you I’m nothing, a lost feckless soul Locked in the lanes of my short little pool But with paddle flashing and you by my side The waters are open, the world is so wide There’s nothing we can’t do, no challenge too great One stroke at a time, my aquarian mate.
