Adult Intro to Canoeing - Ages 16+

Enjoy an exploration of the original North American public transportation! The course objective is to enable you to paddle a solo or tandem canoe with control on protected waters. You will learn about boat designs, materials and equipment. Students will practice getting into the boat from shore and dock, paddling forward and backward, turning, sideways maneuvers and safety. Emphasis will be on students learning to steer and coordinate with a partner for a fun paddling experience. This class will prove that "tippy canoe..." is a rhyme and not a fact.?You will learn on-the-water in the tranquil section of the Farmington River behind our shop using our high quality boats, paddles, and PFDs.
