Kayaking classes in early February

The Chilliwack Centre of Excellence offers another round of beginner kayaking lessons at Chilliwack's Cheam Leisure Centre.

The Chilliwack Centre of Excellence hosts kayak lessons Feb. 5 and 12 at the Cheam Leisure Centre pool.

From 7:30 to 10 a.m. both days, students will learn the basics of kayaking — basic boat control, safety precautions and self-rescue techniques — in a life-guard supervised environment.

The CCE will provide the boat, paddle, spraydeck, lifejacket and instruction. Participants are asked to meet at the boat trailer outside the pool to get equipment ready.
