Trip Photos – Kayak Course Quadra 15-16 June 2013

Six members took the Paddle Canada Level 1 course from Albert Keller of Coast Mountain Expeditions.  The weather was great for the course and the water temperature at the lakes was surprisingly warm.  The first day at Mine Lake focussed on strokes and rescues; the second day near Surge Narrows concentrated on safety, trip planning, braces and rescues.  There was only one unplanned capsize!

It is surprisingly hard to get back into a kayak from the water if you’ve never tried it.  But it becomes much easier after training and practice.
