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.
