January 10th - Cadboro Point Current clinic (#5)
I joined Jennie and Edgar in leading an introductory/intermediate clinic on paddling in currents. After a brief chat on shore we made our way out to Cadboro Point where the ebb current was starting to build. The participants learned how to edge their kayaks, ferry across a channel into the current and made good progress. Many were playing in the small overfalls by the end of the session. We saw buffleheads, scaups, mergansers and a group of river otters while out on the water. We also ran into Dan and Paulo who were just returning from paddling around Discovery.
