Postponed - New To Sea Kayak Pool Session


NSPN Calendar

Event details

NOTE - This event has been postponed due to Covid-19 pandemic.  If we are able to reschedule later in the year, we will make a followup announcement.

As part of the New To Sea Kayak program, this pool session follows the Workshop (not a prerequisite) and offers the opportunity for people to actually sit in (and fall out of!) ocean kayaks in a safe and controlled environment under the watchful eyes of experienced paddlers.  This pool session offers the following opportunities:
 - Experience a capsize and how to effectively (and easily!) come out of the boat
 - How to manage a capsize while wearing a spray skirt
 - How to get back into the boat with assistance and by yourself
 - Feel the difference between various boat models and types

You do not need a kayak or equipment to attend, but you should have water clothing more substantial than a bathing suit to prevent abrasions, especially to your legs.  There are locker rooms to change, and showers to clean up afterwards.  Water shoes (cloth or neoprene) are required - flip flop, crocks, and similar footwear are not recommended as they can get caught on the foot braces.

Date: Saturday May 2, 2020
Time: 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Location: Haverhill, MA (exact location for registrants only)
Cost: FREE!

Registration for this pool session MUST be submitted by emailing [email protected] in order for us to manage logistics, volunteers, and equipment.  We will provide specific address and information to those who register by email.
