Hi everyone. I see this course is not on the training schedule so I thought I would offer space in the one I currently have scheduled for anyone interested.
It takes place the weekend of April 29/30 at Vanier Park in Vancouver. Cost is $150.00 per person – a 40% discount off my regular price of $250.00 for SKABC members.
You will need to have all your own gear including: kayak, paddles (2), sprayskirt, immersion gear (wetsuit or drysuit), footwear, PFD, whistle, Pump, throw bag or tow system.
The course goes from 0830 – 1630 hrs each day (8 hrs). Bring your lunch and snacks. It will cover: Rescue and Re-Entry Skills (Solo, Assisted & towing); Paddle Skills and Technique (Launching & Landing, forward, reverse, sweep, stopping, draw strokes, low brace, stern rudder & edge control); and some excellent knowledge topics (equipment & care, communication, navigation, route planning, weather, sea state, risk assessment & mitigation, cold issues, sun safety and much more).
This is a course for beginners with some experience, those wanting Paddle Canada certification or those just wanting a really good review of their skills, technique and knowledge. It is a jam packed course with focus on paddling and skills practice. You will learn a lot on this course and it is well worth the club price being offered.
There are only 2 spaces left on this course. It begins in about 4 weeks. Book your space now. Contact Mike Gilbert by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by cell 778-835-0774.
