Strokes, braces, rolls and rescues- all skill levels

A practice session for anyone wanting to improve their paddling skills. All skill levels welcome and encouraged.  

Sometimes you just don't have the time to practice these skills while on a group paddle.  This is not one of those paddles. We will meet up and mess about,  practicing new skills and also brushing up on the older ones. What do you want to practice? I am able to pair up if anyone wishes to practice rescues. 

We will stay within the protected waters of Caddy Bay and any paddlin' will be relaxed. 

So come on out and spend a little time becoming one with your boat, body, and blade

    This is exactly what I need and want: others with whom to practice basic self-rescue and bracing skills. Sadly, something has come up and I will not be able to make it.

    Hi. just a heads up I will probably only be able to stay till about about 630 or so till I need to think about getting out of the water. I need to get to the lacrosse game in Colwood to use up one of my pre-bought tickets. I will probably get down there early so that I'm on the water and ready to go by 530. And to answer what I want to work on... basics of braces and rescues. It's been a while since I've worked on them and most of my kayaking has been in boats (Folbot Super) so stable that those skills just fade away.

    I am an avid female kayaker, use to guide but now travel nurse. I am on an assignment right now and will return in Sept. I will be keen to paddle upon return. :)

      Great! I do have a significant amount of experience but it has been a while since I have been on the water frequently. Cheers!
