Greenland Comes to Reading on 3/7


Recommended Posts

The March 7 Reading Pool session will be devoted to Greenland-style paddling. If you are curious about trying it or want to explore some more advanced maneuvers, sign up now - details below. The number of available slots is limited!

Sanjay Gulati will demonstrate some advanced Greenland rolls and maneuvers to inspire you, then he and Adam Bolonsky will teach you how to get started. We will have extra Greenland paddles on hand and lots of spotters.

If you want to just come, stay dry and observe, that is fine too. The Reading pool even has bleachers. No need to sign up to observe.

Registrar: Karen Gladstone email: drkglad@yahoo.com

Equipment for this pool session, includes:

* PFD - required, as always

* Spray skirt - required, if you want to accomplish anything

* Goggles or a face mask -- highly recommended for practice that involves immersion, since chlorinated pools can be hard on the eyes.

* Paddle float – optional, but not really needed for this session

* Pump – optional for practice involving capsized or swamped boats

* Greenland paddle. If you do not have one don’t let that stop you. We will have loaners.


NSPN requires that payment for the pool sessions must be made in advance of the pool session. Your Registrar will provide you with the details that you need to know. Pool sessions are non-refundable.

When you inquire about a pool session, please include: Your name, phone number, NSPN membership number, expiration date, emergency contact and their phone number in the email.
