The Kalamazoo Sessions have been off to a grand start. Attendance has been awesome with 12-15 people for each session. Many thanks to Ken Nesbitt and the Great Lakes Adventure Club for the enthusiastic support of Lee’s and Go Kayak Now!
A pool is often a difficult place to work on strokes. Forward strokes in a pool simply take too much space. Although draws work really well. It was great to see so many students pick up the draw stroke so quickly. I hope we can continue the enthusiasm into the outdoors and ensure we have some forward stroke, rudders, draws, and bracing to work on once the weather becomes more liquid.
This week I think we will begin working on bracing, strokes, and for those interested, advanced rescues.
