Novice Kayak Class

This two-day class is for people who have at least some kayak experience and who would like to learn the basics of river kayaking. We will discuss safety, practice basic strokes, and travel one local class II section of the Potomac river each day.

On Day 1, we will paddle the GW Channel. We will meet at the put-in, set a shuttle to the take-out (there is no water in the C&O Canal), then paddle across the river to the old GW Canal Channel.

On Day 2, we will paddle from Old Angler's Inn to Lock 10. We will meet at the take-out, shuttle to the put-in, and paddle down the river together.

You will spend a full day on the river, so bring lunch and plenty of water.

In the event of high water, alternative venues may be used.
