Tandem Tune Up

Develop skills and communication techniques to work together better and more safely as a canoeing team. Participants will review strokes and maneuvers on flat water as a team. Afterwards we will practice the same skills on slow moving water, focusing on working together and using the current to help. Partners will be encouraged to paddle in both the bow and stern.
