The former BEWET Splash & Thrash returns on Thursday nights starting in May. Come on out and get some time practicing or learning something new. While experience is earned by getting out on the water, you may find that participating in trips and night paddles doesn't always allow the opportunity to do more than 1,000's of forward strokes. There is more to kayaking!
Come out and practice rolls, braces, towing, or just work on the fundamentals. Don't know what you don't know? Check out the ACA Coastal Kayaking competencies for some ideas of things you may want to work on. First time in a kayak? That's okay too, we'll guide you through the basics and the club has rental boats. We are all here to help each other learn and become better paddlers.
The Splash & Thrash will be held every other Thursday from May through August, 5-7pm. The times are approximate and by its nature, arriving late or leaving early is okay! The location is Magnuson Park in Seattle, conveniently located near the club rental boats. We'll be at the south end of the Park (use the lot off NE 65th St), but may move to the North End (Sail Sand Point) in the middle of the summer if the crowds gets heavy. We'll also have the grill ready!
