Winter Theory Programs

Thursdays 18:30 – 20:30, starting 02 February 2023
starting at $10/ person, plus tax / fees

Learn how to plan your paddling adventures, navigate confidently along your route and prepare for the unexpected along the way. This program will be run over 14 Thursday evening sessions. Regardless if you are going out on a half-day trip or a multi-day expedition, knowing where you are and where you want to go and how to survive the unexpected is an essential skill for all paddlers. 

All materials are included for the course; however, if you wish your own set of nautical tools, they are available during the course at an additional cost. 

We offer 3 programs, each consisting of sessions that include clinics, lessons, and classes. 

  • Kits & Repairs – First aid, repair, ditch/survival
  • Trip Planning
  • Navigation – Map & Compass

Great flexibility! Register for one or more single sessions, save if you register for in a complete program, or maximize your discount by registering for all 14 sessions!
