(OLLI AT UVM PRESENTS) Kayaking on Lake Champlain with Canoe Imports

Jul 18, 2014
9:00 am to 12:00 pm
North Beach, Burlington

Try a new water sport this summer, or improve your kayaking skills with other OLLI members! Includes two hours of instruction, all equipment, and another hour to paddle on your own. The class is taught in recreational kayaks, which offer the stability that new paddlers need. You will learn about carrying kayaks, launching and getting out of your kayaks, basic paddling strokes and maneuvering your craft. This is a great way to jump start your paddling, or to help prepare you for more in-depth classes such as Sea Kayaking Essentials or Rolling and Rescue. Our ACA certified instructors will teach you how to get the most from your kayak. Kayaks and Life Jackets provided.

Price: OLLI Members: $55/Non-Members: $70
