We'll teach and discuss different techniques for re-entering a kayak in deep water. There are dozens of methods that can be used to re-enter a kayak, below are links to videos of just a few. We'll meet at the Community Boathouse dock and practice in the area around Towhead Island but out of the way of the dock. Everyone should bring and wear their PFD. Bring any equipment you have such as a bilge pump, sponges, paddle float, etc. Be prepared to get wet, restrooms in the parking lot can be used for changing.
