Paddle Canada Logo I am out teaching a Paddle Canada Level 2 Instructor Course for White Squall for the next 5 days so I won't be making any postings until I get back.

If you have news or some good paddling gossip, send it along to me and I can post it when I get back.

For those who are interested, we are spending day 1 at White Squall then going out on the bay for 4 days.

One thing that I notice about teaching these upper end courses is that the teacher/student split is virtually non-existent. At this level, the students are basically peers when it comes it skill level and teaching ability so these course naturally turn into large group sharing as we work through the program.

That means lots of talking and geeking out on kayaking...

It should be a lot of fun.
