This class will meet at Puckerbrush Access 1 mile north of the Van Meter Exit off I 80.
Learn how to apply the flatwater skills you’ve learned during Fundamentals I to moving water. As you enjoy a casual trip down the Raccoon River, we’ll show you how to identify the faster current and deeper water on the river. You’ll also be introduced to upriver and downriver V’s, eddies, and strainers so you can avoid hazards as you paddle. We’ll help you develop a better understanding of the current and how to apply well-timed strokes to allow the river to move you effortlessly and safely.
Classes will run 8:30-5:00
