    This intro' solo river canoeing program is for those with basic flatwater  solo skills.  This course will teach the flat water and moving water skills for paddling solo canoes on easy moving water.   The program will start at the Hermitage Park Ponds in east central Edmonton for the first morning and the afternoon on the river in Edmonton and then spend one day on a local easy river.  All equipment will/can be supplied.  Participants do need to bring a towel and change of clothes, swims do happen occasionally!  Rain gear should be brought... only thunder storms chase us off the water.  For canoeing a pair of knee pads are helpful, and paddlers are encouraged to bring along their own paddle and lifejacket.  For the day long river session paddlers will car pool, and will need to bring lunch.  For the river sessions paddlers should have at least good raingear, and a partial wet or drysuit would be ideal, and a helmet (available from CCC).

    This program runs: July 18, at Hermitage Park Ponds, and the North Saskatchewan River 

    July 19 on a river close to Edmonton, the Pembina

    Learn some rescue skills to make your river paddling less stressful. We will cover basic canoe rescue skills on flatwater, then take what we've  learned to the river to practice there. Some skills covered will be t-rescues, parallel rescues, clip and tow, and self rescue. This is for those who want to brush up and refresh some of their skills or for those who have never learned them, and can be either tandem or solo paddlers. 

    Be prepared to swim so bringing a change of clothes and having wet suits, or partial dry suits would be good. Participants are encouraged to use their own canoes and gear (paddles, lifejackets, throw-bags, etc) or the club can also supply all the necessary gear. Pack a lunch and snacks as this will be a full day.
