Kayak rolling and rescue practice pool time

Jan 26

FYI. The folks at Appomattox River Co are renting the Newport News YMCA pool again this winter for kayakers to practice rolling and rescue skills. This isn’t a class, but rather an opportunity to practice rescue skills off season in warm clear water. I’ve attended several times over the last few years, and found it was a good use of my time.
The dates are January 5th, January 26th, February 16th and March 9th from 5:00 to 7:00. You’ll need to register / pay in advance to reserve your spot. The cost is $10 per person, which seems like a bargain to me.
Bring your own clean gear- boat, PFD, skirt, paddle and helmet. You may also want your paddle float.
