WRPC Safety & Skills Classes Offered Summer 2021!
The Wenatchee Row & Paddle Club (WRPC) is excited to offer three options for 1-Day Skill & Safety courses this summer taught by an American Canoe Association (ACA) certified instructor, Heather Herbeck. These high-quality courses give new and experienced paddlers critical safety information and hands-on practice to safely and enjoyably paddle on gentle rivers, such as our local stretch of the Columbia River. Come and learn for the first time or get a refresher on information every rower and paddler should know including efficient paddle strokes, river features, safety and rescue essentials.
What courses are available?
A 1-Day Beginner/Refresher course is offered on July 10th and August 14th and an Intermediate course is available on August 15th (the Intermediate course builds on information taught in the Beginner/Refresher course).
Who can sign-up?
WRPC club members are eligible to sign up as a membership benefit and to comply with the club’s insurance policy. All boater-types are welcome including kayakers, canoeists, SUPers and rowers, however kayak instruction is the skills focus of the class.
