Location: Crescent City, California
The aim of this program is to enable participants to explore a number of techniques and tools to improve their boat handling skills whilst exploring the ocean coastline. The day will cover a broad spectrum of topics including blending strokes for efficiency and appropriate selection for specific scenarios as well as aspects of sea safety and group management. Participants will spend time in conditions commonly encountered on the open ocean. The outcome of the program is to give participants full command over their kayak and will build a firm foundation for paddling in more challenging conditions. Full immersion gear and helmets are required. To register, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
