HOLIDAY Kayaking Lessons
Safety items are among the best holiday gifts one can give the active outdoor person. One of the best safety gifts for the new kayaker is a good course in paddling technique and rescues. The sport of coastal kayaking in Long Island Sound has been growing in popularity for many years. Sea kayaks are ideal for exploring our local waters, but like any other water craft, they must be used properly and safely. The Small Boat Shop of Norwalk will be running kayaking classes this winter at the indoor pool at SUNY Purchase, NY in Westchester County. The course includes instruction on a variety of steering and control strokes, wet exits, capsize recoveries, and an efficient forward stroke. While anybody can get into a kayak and paddle it across the harbor, doing so safely and properly in a variety of weather conditions does take some hands-on learning. The course is twelve hours long, spread over three Sundays. Instructors are certified by either the American Canoe Association or the British Canoe Union and are chosen for their kayaking and teaching experience. Each day includes some classroom time for basic concepts, but most of the session is spent at learning in the pool. Along with information on hypothermia and sudden immersion syndrome. A maximum of six students with two instructors ensures plenty of attention. Boats and equipment are provided, as are lockers and showers. Interested persons can register by phone at 203-854-5223, or in person at the Small Boat Shop at 144 Water Street, Norwalk. Full details and a complete schedule are available at WWW.THESMALLBOATSHOP.COM
