I have now introduced over 900 people to paddling. I know that some of you still do not feel very comfortable paddling on your own, so this course is for you.
If you are still not quite sure what to do if you go swimming, this course is for you.
If you do not know how to properly use a throw rope, both from the shore and from the water, this course is for you.
We will review the basics of paddling but then we will learn several different ways to deal with a swamped kayak, both in still deep water and in moving water. The more you know about self rescue, the safer things will be for you and your paddle partners.
To attend this class, you must have already taken my Basic River Kayaking course, or you can call me and discuss your skill level. This is not for brand new paddlers. If you have attended one of my classes, just mention the year and month of the class in the remarks column.
If you do not have your own boat yet, a boat, paddle and PFD will be provided.
Helmets are required, I have extras if you do not have your own.
All you need to bring is food and water.
We will put in at Johnson Ferry Park and take out at Paces Mill. You do not need to set your own shuttle, we will do this as a group.
We will be on the water until 5:30 or 6:00.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call me.
