June 9 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

WHO: This class will be led by Mike Kowalsky and is intended for developing paddlers looking to enhance their boat-control skills.

Prerequisite: There are no prerequisites for the class but to get maximum benefit and learning from this class we strongly recommend taking an L3: Skills Development Class (currently called Sea Kayaking II at California Canoe & Kayak) or receiving equivalent training prior to this class.

WHAT: This workshop is designed to help you improve your stroke technique, by providing you with more tools to develop skills and improve boat control. This workshop will focus on refining a variety of strokes with emphasis on learning to blend them together for maximum efficiency, effectiveness, and fluidity. We’ll review basic strokes as well as learn new strokes and techniques for multi directional control using strokes on only one side of the boat. Whether you are paddling on a local lake or in ocean rock gardens, being able to control your boat is both fun and essential.

WHEN: We will meet at 9.00 AM and be ready to launch at 9.30 AM. Arrive earlier if you need more time to get ready!

WHERE: We will launch from and return to the public boat ramp at Horseshoe Cove (Fort Baker), Sausalito.

COST: $129 (Minimum enrollment -3, Maximum enrollment – 5). Please read cancellation policy when booking.

Please note: Cost does not include kayak and gear rental. Boats & Gear can be rented from our Partners.
