The Chilliwack Centre of Excellence is running beginner kayak lessons Aug. 20-21 on Cultus Lake.
From 1 to 3 p.m. each day, paddlers with zero kayaking experience will learn basic safety and boat control in a fun and safe environment. At the end of the lessons, paddlers will be prepared for all club events held on flatwater, and for beginner river lessons held later in the summer.
All equipment is provided. Paddlers should dress for the weather.
CCE recommends a wetsuit if possible. The club has some to lend, but cannot guarantee availability or fit.
If a wetsuit is not possible, CCE recommends snug clothing with no cotton. Spandex, fleece or polypropylene are best as a base layer with a wind breaker or rain jacket on top.
Water shoes are also encouraged.
To register for either of these events go online to http://chilliwackcentreofexcellence.sportical.com/ or contact Shonnet Allen by phone at 604-858-0877 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
