Essentials of Canoeing: Flatwater and Moving Water

This is a full day of flat water and a half day of moving water (river) training. You can choose to attend one or both days. Flatwater training includes learning about canoe equipment, boat outfitting, canoe strokes, water safety, and basic maneuvering. Fun, dynamic drills and games will help you learn basic skills for moving the canoe.  The moving water portion will teach you how to “read” the water, safety considerations, and more advanced strokes and maneuvers needed to paddle on rivers. Cost is $40 for the entire two day class or $25 for just the flat water portion. Please register by emailing Debbie Hinde at dhinde1@msn.com.
