Intermediate Whitewater Clinic

John & Sharon Hackert, jhackert@sympatico.ca ----- Book before May 20. This is the fifteenth year of our clinic, which is designed to help improve your basic skills. We will paddle the Lower Mad on Saturday and practice our basic skills at Palmers Rapids on Sunday. The emphasis will be on front ferries, eddy-outs, and peel-outs. Your paddle strokes will be critiqued. You will also have an opportunity to practice self-rescue techniques. Open to properly fitted solo and tandem canoes. Tandem boats must have centre air bags. Wetsuits or drysuits will be needed. We will camp at our cottage.
If spring water levels are lower than normal, we may have to move the date forward to May 12-13. Pray for rain.
