Beginning Paddling Trip
Saturday, May 11, 2013
10:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
$80 members, $90 non-members
($60 members, $70 non-members if you bring your own boat)
Level: Beginner and above.
This class will cover the basics of paddling whether you choose a canoe, kayak or Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP). This is a beginner class. We will not be setting a shuttle so there is no fear of "holding back the group." We will cover Boats 101: types, materials, design, and ask the question, what boat is best for me? We will review proper stroke mechanics for all forms of water craft, reading water and weather, transporting your boat or board, and proper clothing and equipment.
This is a great way to try out all types of boats and boards on a flat water section of Antietam Creek or the Brunswick section of Potomac. PFDs, paddles, boats, and boards are provided.
