Bring your sister, mother, friend or teenaged daughter!! This FREE (with club- membership) women-only program is designed to teach women and girls the basics of on-water safety, how to exit the kayak if you flip over, how to paddle forwards in a straight line and steer using different paddle strokes. Learn together in a fun social, safe environment!! This is a 1 hour lesson 4.30-5.30pm on the water.
