Get Better Faster with New Training Events!
If you’ve ever been on a trip with Bill Porter, you know two things: what a superb kayaker he is and how much you learn when you go on his trips. This year Bill is putting together some great events that are sure to make you a more confident paddler.
February 25 – Intro to Currents. Launching out of Cornet Bay, Bill will lead us out to two islands where there’s a nice eddy and just enough current to make things interesting and fun!
March 25 and April 16 – Rescue Rodeos. It’s a good idea to practice rescues every year, and in these sessions Bill will demonstrate a variety of self and assisted rescue techniques—and you’ll get to try them out!
April 7-9 – Paddler Development Weekend. We’re bringing in Don Cheyette of Seattle Adventure Sports to lead two days of fun training at Bowman Bay. All skill levels are welcome. There will be camping, and food, and tall paddling tales!
June 16-18 – Advanced Leadership & Wilderness Camping Class. Set in the San Juan Islands, this 3-day trip covers all the bases. You’ll work on stroke technique, bracing, rescues, navigation, and camping.
