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
Difficulty Moderate
Costs none
Trip limits 6-8, depending on previous experience
Dogs? No
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.
