Directional Control in Wind with Nigel Foster

Learn to control your kayak with elegant turns and effective steering.  Starting with basics, the step-by-step progressions build into precise moves. The aim is efficiency, with all the details in place for balance, blade control and kayak control. 

Techniques that result in effective turns toward the wind typically perform badly when used to turn from the wind. Given wind in which to practice, our goal is to learn how each technique is best applied to allow the wind to turn the kayak.

The fee is $150 per student for members and $155 for non-members if the class fills to 10 students. An additional $10 per student will be collected by HITW Club at the time of class if it fills to less than 10 students. A Discover Pass is required at Bowman Bay for parking.   Be sure to acquire and to display your pass properly to avoid fees.    

If any problems or questions, please email Teresa Flodin: 

Students are expected to be ready for the water before the class meets for an on-land introduction at 10 am. A morning session afloat, we stop for a break at lunchtime, with short theory session before the afternoon afloat, ending at 4pm.
