PADDLING TIPS SERIES
Open invitation to all Halton Outdoor Club members to learn more about kayaking, safety protocol, tripping, and navigation to just name a few topics.
There will be a series of 6 nights where we will meet to discuss and share best practices both out and in the water. Each workshop will be led by our own members who have learned and want to share their knowledge. This will not be led by certified Paddle Canada leaders (unless a member is certified).
This series is for new to kayak, beginner novice paddlers or intermediates who want to refresh. The first night will be indoors only. The next five will be outdoors with 30 mins on dry land and then off to the water to practice.
