Whether you are new to kayaking, or have paddled for a while and want to develop more efficient strokes, this class is for you!
ACA certified instructor Janie Butcher will help you develop that forward stroke to paddle faster and farther with less effort. We'll also work on the draw strokes to move sideways, and the turning strokes that are the basis for maneuvers. If you are thinking of buying a kayak, take this class first! We will cover equipment fit, kayak recommendations, and safety gear.
Course fee is $35 if you have your own kayak & equipment, or $55 if you use ours. We have two touring kayaks available for rent on a first-come basis if they are a fit for you. Rental equipment is also available through local outfitters.
Class is limited to 5 participants. Clicking "attend" on the meetup allows us to contact you with details, but to be registered you MUST prepay by Paypal or by check. Contact Janie Butcher at [masked] for information and to register.
Proceeds from this class are donated to Upstate Forever for the conservation of our waterways and natural resources.
