The North Shore Kayak Club will hold its annual kayaking clinic, targeted to novice recreational kayakers and those interested in the sport, on Tuesday, May 28. It is scheduled for 7 p.m., at the Town Dock in Port Washington, by the kayak docks (to the left of the fishing pier when facing the water).
Among the items to be addressed at the clinic are: the different types of basic equipment, including kayak and paddle options; the proper way to enter and exit a kayak; basic paddling strokes; and necessary safety gear and precautions. This will be a demonstration and lecture, so it is not necessary to bring any equipment. There is no charge for this event.
North Shore Kayak Club member Seth Ehrlich will give instruction on land and in the water. Mr. Ehrlich stated that, “One of the Club’s goals is to get more people out on the water, experiencing the ever-growing sport of flat-water kayaking.”
The North Shore Kayak Club is a not-for-profit group of local, recreational kayaking enthusiasts, now in its seventh year. Its members are dedicated to enjoying our beautiful, local waterways and the camaraderie of paddling together.
