Kayaking Safety Clinics in Kansas City area

Paddle KC is hosting a couple of safety clinics for kayakers in the Kansas City (Missouri or Kansas) area. It’s free for Paddle KC members. Attendees learn essential safety gear and how to use them, and then do a hands-on session in the water to learn assisted and solo wet re-entry skills. All types of kayaks are welcome, from small recreational boats to sea kayaks. We customize the class to fit attendees. The goal is to boost safety skills in your own kayak.

Our August clinic is full, but we are scheduling more sessions in September. See our calendar and join our paddling club at www.bit.ly/paddlekc.

Our next Kayak Safety clinic with re-entry practice session is Tuesday Sept 12, 6:30pm. This will be our last safety class of the season, so if you’re in the KC area, sign up and join us. It’s great fun, and very helpful info regardless of what type of kayak you paddle.

See details at https://www.meetup.com/paddlekc/events/242661857/. We have 11 people signed up so far, and will add instructors as needed, to manage the student/teacher ratio.
