    We have limited space in our Learn to Paddle sessions due to covid-19. We have set limits with an abundance of caution.  We are waiting to see how the omicron variant plays out before setting more dates for Learn to Paddle.  


    If you cannot attend any of the sessions that are listed, if they are full, or if you want to wait to see how the omicron variant is going, please register here to put your name on a waitlist.   We will email you when we set new dates.  We hope to have more this winter, but if covid won't allow it, we will have many on the water when spring and summer roll around.
