Rec Kayak Clinic # 3:
Eddy Turns, Peel Outs, Water Reading and Portaging
Prerequisite: Experience paddling on a river/creek with moving water.
The goal of this class is to learn good river judgement to navigate moving and class 1 whitewater safely and efficiently. We will paddle 1 mile up the Schuylkill River where there is sufficient current to practice ferries, peel outs, eddy turns, water reading and portaging. Most rivers have flat sections and moving water sections. You will learn when to stop, scout and safely navigate or portage a section you do not wish to run.
Recommended Boats: touring, crossover or recreational kayak..
