Kayak Lessons at Newell Sailing Club

On Friday, July 4 High Level Canoes and Kayaks from Lethbridge will be offering kayaking lessons at the sailing club.  They will bring a wide variety of kayaks to use along with all the necessary gear. They will also bring a few stand up paddle boards to try out.


From 9 am – noon, there will be a beginner class offered at a cost of $65. A level 2 class will follow from 1 – 5 pm for $85. This class will teach more advanced strokes along with rescue techniques.


The beginner class is suitable for any age including kids as young as 8 – 10 as long as they are comfortable in the water. For the level 2 course, the minimum age is 12.  If you are interested in signing up for either course (or both) please contact Larry or Bette Van Pypen at vanpypen 'at'  (replace 'at' with @) or call 403 378-4211 as soon as possible. We need a minimum of 6 for each class and there is a maximum of 12.

Tell your friends and take the lessons together.  It will be fun.
