Spring Paddling Skills Classes
kayak rescue skills In The pool
We are partnering with the Vashon Park District to offer kayak skills classes in the warm water of the swimming pool. We will teach self & assisted rescues, as well as discuss safety gear choices for paddling in the Puget Sound.
The March & April classes are full so we added additional classes in May & June.
The May Rescues class will be at the pool and in June we are adding the Basic Strokes class too. We will paddle from Jensen Point for the Basic Strokes class on Saturday, June 15th and Basic Rescues (in the pool) on Sunday, June 16th. These combo classes are great for anyone new to kayaking or wanting to focus on technique. If you want to take the June combo class, send us an email or call us and we will get you registered for both and provide the combo class discount.
