    This class will teach basic moving water skills that every canoeist should have.  Students will build on the skills they learned in the Introduction to Paddling class, and will learn such maneuvers as upstream ferries, downstream ferries, eddy turns and peel outs.  Students will also receive instruction on reading the river and recognizing hazards.

    Students must have completed the Introduction to Paddling class or its equivalent.  Additional information will be provided to anyone interested.
