    The aim for this Paddle Canada course is for participants to demonstrate the highest level of skills and principles necessary to paddle with a partner in open lake waters, to show confidence and ability to paddle in dynamic paddling environments thus allowing to travel longer distances on open water, and to exhibit leadership skills that will enable the planning and execution of a day trip in an open water environment in a variety of wind conditions. 

    Participants may use their own gear, or the club gear can be made available. This course is for proficient paddlers who want to challenge their skill set and learn more advanced skills. Bring lunch, water bottles, rain gear, and any other personal items to keep you comfortable during the course.

    Dates: Saturday May 9th at Hermitage Ponds, 9 am till 5 pm

    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 can 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.
