Three days of comprehensive skills development for competent ocean paddlers who are looking for new challenges. This course is offered in conjunction with Kevin Horner of Cohasset Paddlesports. Each day we will choose a venue based on conditions, to make the most of the learning opportunities that surround Mount Desert Island. Paddling environments will likely include reversing falls, coastal tide-races and rock gardens.
This three-day format will allow us to focus on underlying fundamental themes of paddling performance, applying and refining them in a variety of situations over a number of days. The relationship that can be developed over a longer course, between coach and participants as well as between the experienced participants, has the benefit of providing for more personal and individualized instruction than is possible in a series of one-day classes. (Preference will therefore be given to students who are available for all three days of this course.)
