We are excited to get the paddling season start with a bang by teaming up with Gerry Polinski of Sea Sherpa Kayak for their 4th Annual Polar Paddle Practicum. Gerry & Carl will be co teaching this exciting coastal & open water skills development course along coast of Southern Maine. 

South coast Maine is a fantastically beautiful area which is often underutilized by the paddle community. Part instructional, part exploratorium, participants will have the opportunity to work with instructors to help pick the days’ venues and quantify what makes them tick. Paddlers will work in similarly experienced pods allowing all to push within their comfort zones.

Southern Maine offers classic nautical sea & landscapes and is filthy with fantastic rock gardening & surf options, lighthouses and lobster boats. Participants will be staying together in a hotel in Wells which is conveniently situated across the street from a grocery and walking distance to restaurants. Each room
has a fridge, microwave and coffeemaker. Wells is a nice town and close to many venue options enabling access to all sorts of great paddling.

Appropriate Skill Level: Advanced beginners to advanced intermediate open water paddlers.
