Kayak Navigation Class

This is an introduction to kayak navigation classroom session for all levels.  If you’ve taken navigation before, you can still come, I guarantee you probably forgot a lot of it.  I teach this so I don’t forget.  We focus on planning a trip and look at the factors that might be involved.  Then we cover what we might expect to find while paddling.  This class will be scheduled again in the Spring of 2020.
