Ben Lawry Class -- Moving Water & Boat Control 1
Monday, July 31, 2017, 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM
Location TBD; in the greater Twin Cities area.
Open to ISK members only.
See prerequisites below.
Cancellation Policy: No refunds will be given for this class. Registrants who are unable to participate have the option of finding another qualified participant to take their place. Contact Peggy for waiting list.
Our goal will be to find suitable moving water, such as a local river with eddy lines and/or standing waves. We'll start learning how to read the water and work with it, while covering eddy line crossings, ferries, and ranges. These are skills you'll want on local rivers, and they transfer to paddling in currents on the ocean. Oh, and they're fun!
If suitable moving water is not available, this class will focus on boat control and the sorts of skills one might use for rock gardening, and/or other class requests.
Helmets required. Expect to spend time in the water.
- Forward Stroke 1
- Core Paddling 1
- Self and assisted rescue
- Comfortable swimmer
