Current and prospective AMC Sea Kayak leaders should attend our annual day long session to polish their skills and hone their training methods. The class is run by a number of ACA-trained Sea Kayak instructors. We will cover a full range of trip-leading topics, from planning and screening through strokes and rescue to safety, and the administrative details of running trips. Novice leaders will acquire practical knowledge on the water and grizzled veterans will share wisdom of seasons past.
