|Trip Coordinator||Brent Henry|
|Contact Infoemail@example.com, text: 250-205-1106. Please contact the coordinator by Monday evening (June 21) .|
|Description||We will go on a warm up paddle and find a suitable spot to practise bracing, wet exits and paddle float rescues as basic skills for club paddles.|
|Meeting Place||Mine Lake boat launch|
|Departure Time||10:00 on the water|
|Trip limits||6-8, depending on previous experience|
|Notes:||If possible, bring to wear or borrow a lightweight paddling wet suit, as this facilitates getting immersed more than once. Have a towel and spare dry clothing and some lunch or snacks. A thermos of hot tea is not a bad idea for warming up after practise.
Participants should review kayaking information on the club site by going to: “Required gear and safety equipment”.
Boats should also have adequate flotation in both bow and stern, with either built-in bulkheads or flotation bags or air bottles of some type, attached or contained in the boat.
