Kayaking Skills Training at Queanbeyan Pool #4 Thursday

Trip type: 
Whitewater Kayaking
Difficulty: 
Easy
Start date: 
Thursday, 21 March 2019 - 5:00pm to 8:45pm

This is the 4th session of the 4 we are running in this 2 weeks. If you are a beginner, these sessions are for you. If you have more advanced skills, you will be co-opted into sharing your skills with others. This is a chance for all to get into your favourite kayak and improve your skills before you head out on your next whitewater or sea kayaking adventure. This is not a formal course and there is no certification. We will practice basic paddling skills. You will improve your command of your paddle and your kayak. In so doing, you will become more confident and capable on moving water and be able to better effect self and assisted rescues. When you are ready, you may even conquer the holy grail of kayaking - the kayak roll. More advanced paddlers with a roll should take this opportunity to practice other kayak rolling techniques.  Bring the following if you can: wetsuit or thermals, diving mask or swim goggles and nose clamp, swimmers, wind protection such as a cag or other close fitting light weight spray jacket, warm clothes change, towel, soap etc, cash for your fee. There is also a canteen for the hungry or thirsty.

 

Costs: 
$15 to cover: fuel, pool entry fee, lane hire, kayak hire. Lesson is for free.
Intended plan: 
Meet at the Boatshed (see ANU Boat Club on Google Maps) at 17.00 so we can load kayaks and depart for our road trip to Qbn Pool. We need at least 3 cars to transport the group, thus please indicate in the registration form if you can bring yours. We plan to arrive to the pool by 1745 and be on the water by 1800.
