Intro to Day TouringIMG 1092
This is a Saturday afternoon day trip filled with instruction on how to extend your paddling range. This course is intended for the recreational paddler accustomed to paddling close to shore in a smaller kayak. We will be using full size touring kayaks (provided at no charge) and showing you what you need to do to prepare, pack, stay warm and safe for a destination a little further from shore in the fall. We will also be demonstrating deep water self rescues and more efficient paddling techniques. If you already have these skills then it is a great opportunity to get a friend involved in the sport you love!
