We will paddle some and stop along the way to work on skills. The conditions of the day and the group needs will help determine what we get covered each week. At the same time the evening sessions will also be enjoying the sunset on the Hudson River.

Learn to control your kayak using new skills. Increase the efficiency of your forward stroke. Prevent you kayak from capsizing. Rescue others in real conditions using a variety of different techniques. Have fun and play games.

Kayaking is about balance. Games are about having fun. Kayak games improve your skills as we all have fun.

For the evening sessions, you need to have a white flashlight or headlamp as we will be getting off the water near or after sunset.

Every session will be about enjoying the Hudson, improving skills and having fun.

The Saugerties Sunset programs are a great way to put your skills to work.
