Program Description

The program emphasizes learning boat control so that paddlers will gain the confidence, skills and knowledge to be safe and have fun. The program starts with knowledge and skills necessary for “beachfront” paddling activities. It progresses to introduce the novice paddler to paddling with a partner and to introduce basic land and water rescue techniques. All groups are accompanied by coaches in the same ‘inflatable’ coach boats used for sailing programs. Small tours around parts of English Bay are included when conditions are suitable.
