Two days of comprehensive skills development for improving paddlers who are looking for new challenges. 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 on one day, and coastal islands/rocky environments another day.
This multi-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 may therefore be given to students who are available for both days of this course.)
