Join the Lehigh Valley Kayak and Canoe Club for a skills refresher session. This event is for recreational paddlers who would like to practice and improve their paddling skills.
We will work on paddling strokes, rescue and towing techniques as well as discuss basic safety on the water.
You will need a recreational kayak( sea kayak or touring kayak is ok), paddle, helmet (bike helmet is ok), PFD, and a spray skirt( if you do not have one that is ok.).
Dress for immersion and have a change of cloths for the trip home. There are bathrooms where you can change. No cotton clothing or open toed shoes. A broad brimmed hat is a good idea as well as sun glasses.
Bring a lunch or snack and plenty of water.
Your kayak must have launch permits which can be obtained from the PA Fish and Game Commission. See our club website for a link where you can get your permit on line: //lehighvalleycanoeclub.org/link.
