This Island Rec clinic is about taking the skills learned from our Essential Skills I Kayak Clinic and putting them into practice in open water. We'll learn strategies for launching from a beach or dock, how to handle various tidal conditions, practice compass use and navigation, paddling techniques, group kayaking, how to tow and raft, and on-water self-rescue work.
You must have your own kayak and equipment for this clinic and it is recommended that you have taken the Essentials Skills Clinic I or other similar class. A wetsuit or dry suit are recommended.
Please note this clinic does not offer certification.
This program is for ages 16 and up and will take place from 10 am to 3:30 pm. Saturday, September 29 at Jackson Beach.
Early registration, which is until September 20, is $56; the registration fee is $66 thereafter.
