    What is done during the pool sessions? Do you practice escapes, recoveries, and Eskimo rolls? Are there other activities? I'm not in a position to be in a boat quite yet, but am eager to attend some of the sessions in January.

    My boat is a 13.5 ft sea kayak. Could I bring that since I don't have a whitewater boat? Are there whitewater boats to borrow/rent?

      Hi Thomas,
      People of all skill levels attend the pool sessions. There are often instructors available to help with technique and rolling. Those of us who are not certified instructors are happy to give you some pointers and help with the basics. You can rent a whitewater boat at Midwest Mountaineering or you can post on the Rapids Riders web forum if you would like to borrow some gear. The Jan. pool dates are all listed on the website events page. I will post the dates here on MeetUp towards the end of Dec.
      You may also want to Canoe U in the spring for certified instruction on the river.
