Our 3rd annual special training with Becky for our RACCC Volunteer Flatwater Instructors/Helpers Team.
We look forward to developing our own paddling skills and being inspired.
Just when you think you know how to canoe, Becky pulls out yet another refinement, another maneuver, another amazing paddling possibility.
Tandem Evening: some blind paddling to pay attention to weighting the canoe as well as partner work, more advanced tilting and carving turns. Paddling with more ease and finesse!   Always some cool more advanced maneuvers to finish off.
(bring a blindfold and kneeling pad)
Solo Evening: Refinement of basic strokes and maneuvers (spins, slides, turns) and more advanced tilting applied to carving turns.
(bring a kneeling pad, solo 'saddle' and something to add weight to the bow of your boat - e.g. a1 gallon jug or dry bag - to fill with lake water)
