While we've heard it said that sometimes it's better to be lucky than good, it seems obvious to us that knowledge and skill make their own luck. The classes and clinics that we offer throughout the year are designed to build on the skill level of any kayaker. The Foundation Sea Kayaking Class begins at the basic level, covers the fundamentals of safe, efficient paddling, and sets the stage for future kayaking discoveries. Our Stroke Clinic is an excellent refresher for those paddlers who haven't practiced in a while, as well as a great place to learn some of the more advanced strokes not presented in other programs. Students in the Rescue and Recovery course learn about essential safety equipment, along with a variety of towing and rescue techniques. Navigation and Trip Planning classes focus on the waters of western Washington and cover the wide range of issues that kayakers need to know when it comes to charts, compasses, tides and currents.

The Coastal Skills Workshop is an opportunity for students to get familiar with the surf zone, to play in the waves and the currents that characterize the wild and wonderful Pacific Northwest coastline. For those who have had enough of wet exits and re-entries, and are ready to master the kayak roll, our Roll Clinic is just the ticket.

This years schedule incorporates some minor changes to the way certain classes are taught, as well as some entirely new course offerings. Teaching techniques and organizational methods evolve over time, but there is one constant to which we will always be committed: The highest quality kayaking skills instruction available anywhere.
