New England Intermediate Rough Water Kayak Training Symposium

The Northeast Intermediate Rough Water Symposium (RWS) will be conducted outside Point Judith, RI on Friday, June 11 to Sunday June 13, 2010. It will again be based out of Camp Fuller where (this year) nearly everyone can bunk in cabins, have a post paddling shower, all while sharing great home cooked meals and a chance to connect to the paddling community. There will be access to both flood and ebb tides each day, and the sea state should be livelier in June. It will be the long, lazy days of early summer, fewer power boaters competing for space…and a chance to get prepared for the upcoming paddling season. Nigel Dennis and a large number of his strong Pro paddlers will be in full force along with the top notch Fishers Race Team members. You’ll note some new coach faces that will keep you on the front edge of your seat. You’ll see new offerings of Incident Management, Core Paddling and Short Boat Surfing. But the emphasis remains on rock gardens, long boat surfing and tidal races, along with continued commitment to building our paddling clubs and community. There will be BCU 4 Star Sea Leader training and a 5 Star Tidal Training module.
