This is a structured coaching/instruction session for paddlers who want to learn more tandem paddling skills, get some coaching and have a chance to practice in a low key, encouraging setting. We paddle rain or shine.

Lessons will be tailored to the skill levels of the participants. The goal is to help all participants learn and develop precision canoeing techniques to paddle with more ease and finesse.  

This is a nice opportunity to meet other club members, and potential paddling partners for RACCC outings.
