Ben Lawry Power Paddle Camp 5/27-29

Recommended Posts

BEN LAWRY is offering an ACTIVE WATER TRAINING (POWER PADDLE CAMP) here in the coastal CT/RI border area, May 27-29. Celebrity guest coaches will include Dave White (Alder Creek Guide who ripped it up in Pacific Horizons) and Ginni Callahan (Sea Kayak Baja founder and guide, BCU 5 Star Leader, 4 Star Coach and ACA Level 5 Open Water Instructor) both of who are renowned guides and expeditioners. Co-presented by Gerry Polinsky guide and founder of Sea Sherpa Kayak. Local luminaries TBD.

Unlike the standard symposium model, this three day intensive will be a focused instructional so it’s guaranteed to kick start your paddling season. This is all about fine tuning your rough water skill set: boat handling in surf, rock gardens and tidal streams, navigation and incident management. Paddlers will be broken up into three groups based on current skill set so anyone from advanced beginners to experienced big water paddlers are welcome. We'll be staying at a rustic, beautiful camp with a lodge, cabins and food service in North Stonington, CT. Campfires, informative presentations and venue conditions briefings will be some of the dryland activities. Rental boats and support equipment (including drysuits) are available but limited. Sponsors include P&H Kayaks, Werner Paddles and Kokatat.

Spots are limited to 24 participants and our ratio will be no higher than 5:1 for any event to assure that classes are intimate and productive. Spaces are limited and already filling so consider booking soon.
