After a short on-land session, we will take to our boats and learn to paddle in a straight line, paddle in reverse, spin the boat in place, and make turns around obstacles.

The objective for the afternoon is to prepare you with the skills needed in moving water. We will paddle a set course around markers in the water, practice sharp, tight maneuvers, paddle backwards in a straight line, and play some on-water games.
