Kayaking - Beginner Whitewater “Fast Track” (201+)
This is the same as the two-day class, but only for those who can handle a more aggressive learning curve. Friday evening is spent getting fitted with gear and the kayaks, and learning “wet-exits” and paddle strokes on flatwater. Saturday is right into the whitewater river trip to introduce river reading and running and refining skills. Please recognize Saturday will be a longer day on the water than usual. Swimming ability required. Minimum age is 15. All equipment provided. Max participant weight of 235 lbs. due to kayak limitations.
