FastTrack 1: INTENSIVE
July 28 - July 30
Designed for athletic beginner, novice, and intermediate paddlers, MIKCo’s FastTrack courses have been highly effective at quickly tuning aspirants into paddlers on the sea. The FastTracks will push you farther, faster. FastTrack 1: INTENSIVE covers the fundamental building blocks of most sea paddling skills and rescues, with an equal emphasis on developing your seamanship: your judgmental skills of navigating, expeditioning, and appropriate bumpy water practice experience. Course-specific teaching methods are geared toward the quicker-learning paddlers willing to work for their skills and decision making. You’ll leave with exercises and tasks to continue your development, and have a basic mental framework for making wiser decisions on the sea.
FastTrack Courses include use of MIKCo’s expedition grade sea-kayaks, all kayaking gear, rescue and safety equipment, paddling clothing (wetsuits and jackets), and study materials. MIKCo provides lunches on all of our courses. On the 3-day courses, we may meet in the evening for additional study or an informal potluck meal around a fire.
Due to the intensive content and variable methodology, MIKCo’s FastTrack courses are designed to be taken more than once. Do not hesitate to write or call with questions about specifics or appropriateness for your interests.
Cost for the 3-day weekend is $480.
