Please save the dates (June 29 – July 7, 2013) and plan to join us for all or part of the Finger Lakes Paddle Fest and Skills Week, which will be held in the spectacular setting of Cayuga Lake near Ithaca, NY.  The Paddle Fest is a multi-disciplinary event that will be fun, exciting and informative. There will be full-day and half-day classes and trips offered in sea kayaking, canoeing and SUP. The range of classes will meet the needs of paddlers at all ability levels. 

There will also be classes designed just for kids (ages 7-12).  Come learn basic, intermediate or advanced strokes and rescues; discover the art of navigation; learn to roll or learn new rolls; enhance your Greenland skills, try SUP Yoga and much more.

In addition to the classes, there will also be a series of FREE evening events that will include:

• A rolling demonstration by Greenland champion Alison Sigethy

• A "hands on” Outrigger Canoe demonstration

• Sunset and 4th of July fireworks paddles and

• Slide show presentations on paddling in Baja and Greenland

The Finger Lakes region is a great paddling destination with rolling hills, spectacular waterfalls, wineries all over the place and easy access to the great shops and restaurants in the nearby, very vibrant city of Ithaca.  And there is a huge paddling community in the region, so you’ll have the opportunity to make a lot of new friends. We’ve pulled together a great team of instructors for this event, including Alison Sigethy, Rick Wiebush, Jennifer Miller, Mike Cavanaugh and more!  These folks are not only top-notch paddlers, but also very patient and supportive instructors.
