River Wind Kayak will be offering three days of open water sea kayak training for aspiring intermediate level paddlers at Vilano Inlet St. Augustine, Florida. This location provides for easy access to the protected waters of the intercostal waterway and nearby beaches as well as Vilano, Matanzas and Fort George Inlets as conditions allow. This training is a great opportunity for all intermediate level paddlers who are interested in learning how to paddle safely in open water or the more challenging ocean environment. We plan to follow ACA guidelines and cover topics such as safety, paddling in groups, navigation, towing and rescues. We will be focusing on reading conditions, identifying safe zones and matching the challenge to the paddler. This location provides a great opportunity for intermediate paddlers to learn and practice strokes and rescues, as well as safely manage movement through open water challenges such as surf, rough water, and current. This training is a great opportunity for any intermediate level paddler, and also designed to provide the aspiring sea kayak instructor the opportunity to teach and earn credit for an L4 IDW or skills assessment. All listed courses will be offered each day, so folks will have a “cafeteria” of training choices.
