Greenland Comprehensive Skills Workshop with Cheri & Turner

Greenland Comprehensive Skills Workshop

October 13-14, 2012

In this Cheri Perry and Turner Wilson workshop learn the traditional kayaking skills and tools of the Inuit seal catchers that offer valuable lessons for the modern day kayaker. Learn Greenland strokes: forward canted, bow and  stern sweeps, bow and stern rudders, draws, and bracing. Explore Greenland rolling variations: both layback and forward recoveries with the paddle will be demonstrated and taught as well as norsaq, hand rolls, and more.

With a maximum student to teacher ratio of 4:1, there is much opportunity for reaching your individual goals. Each day will consist of a half day of strokes/maneuvers, and a half day of rolling/rescues. Maximum number of students is 8: we need minimum of 6 students to make this work. The workshop is two days. The fee of $350.00 is due at time of registration.

A variety of Greenland style kayaks, paddles and other equipment will be available for use.

Cheri & Turner's weekend in Charleston 2011 was rated 5 out of 5 stars.  What some participants had to say:

    One of the very best training classes I have attended. Their observations go far beyond the via in assessing and refining what it takes for you to have successful roll. They are able to communicate that to every individual based on how they procees information to ensure you get the required body boat and blade correlation. Hooah!
