Flatwater Orientation

Paddlers new to flatwater will be required to complete a FREE mandatory equipment and paddling orientation session before using sprint boats (C1/K1/surfski) on their own. The boats are very expensive and extremely fragile.

A few members from the current sprint program will be available to help you get started. They will go over things like: equipment usage and care boat parts the difference between boats what boats you are allowed to […]
