This is a physically intense, and intensely fun, course for people who believe that kayaking will be better if they get better, and, are willing to work very hard to get better. This course, together with your serious effort, will result in a quantum leap in your kayaking ability making you a more confident (but exhausted) Class III paddler. You must be in at least your second season of kayaking, with at least 8 days of paddling last year, and at least 6 days of paddling this year, and, you must have several days of Class III experience. You must have at least a 50% chance of a combat roll, have all of your own equipment, and be in excellent physical condition. Your instructors will be friendly encouraging drill sergeants who love kayaking and teaching. Assuming appropriate water levels the course will be held at The Forks, Maine, on-the-water Friday and Saturday. Download the FAQ page and application from the attached links. If you have a question that is not answered on the FAQ page, or need the FAQ and application emailed to you, please email the leader.
