Intro to River Kayaking Class
Saturday, August 15th
Want to explore river paddling, but not quite ready for whitewater? Curious about back ferries and eddy turns but too shy to ask? Intro to River Kayaking (IRK) is for you! This class introduces the skills you need to take charge of your boat and travel safely on Class I rivers.  You’ll learn how to spot and avoid river hazards and how to use different river features to make paddling easy, relaxing, and fun. 
Plan on a full day of paddling, instruction, and overall discussion, 8-10 hours
It’s the weather that decides where we’ll paddle, though it will be somewhere local.
ERK is a great class for anyone who wants to do day trips on easier moving water, but it is not a beginner’s class. Before taking this class, students must complete COP Kayak I, COP QuickStart Kayak, or an equivalent class/experience. 

Before signing up for this class, students should be comfortable performing a wet exit and should have some very basic kayaking experience.

The cost for the class is $65 for COP Members, $75 for Non-members. 
Kayaks are provided, along with other essential gear.
Cancellations which cannot be replaced and/or no-shows will not be refunded.
