Paddlers Guide to Safety

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

Our local USCGAux. Tri-State Flotilla 1002 in Cooperation with the American Canoe Association are offering this FREE course about all aspects of paddling safety, situational awareness, equipment, and skills required to have an enjoyable experience. Paddle Craft have become a rapidly growing and diversifying portion of the recreational watercraft community. Sea kayaks, sit on top kayaks, white water kayaks, rowing sculls, canoes, paddle boards, stand-up paddle boards, pedal propelled craft, and many others are now on the waters in untold numbers. Easily manufactured and purchased at many locations with various constructions. Easily transported to any shoreline, not requiring registration or a formal boat launch; an unprepared operator can find themselves in overwhelming conditions that can become deadly in minutes. Local paddlers should attend this FREE, first-time offered seminar to expand their skills. Register soon as classroom space is limited.
