This informative class is for all skill levels, it is designed to introduce and strengthen skills for Level II Trips. Bracing and Edging are not particular favorites to practice. Mainly because we do not want to fall in! We are going to show you a fun and safe way to practice Bracing and Edging with confidence. These skills are essential to keep you upright and to maneuver your kayak in conditions. The venue for the class is in clear shallow water. The activities are 'Challenge by Choice' I would like to add that we have selected activities that will help ease your apprehensions. (Optional: Bring a face mask (Publix $10) just in case we have an opportunity to some other fun activities.)

When:  Saturday, April 20, 9:00 am at the monthly picnic.

Requirements: Must be comfortable doing wet exits with a spray skirt.

What to bring specifically for this class: Spray skirt, paddle float if you have one. Sea Kayak with bulkheads bow and stern.
