This workshop is intended for Whatcom County high school students, and will cover basic kayaking skills and focus on having fun on the water in a safe learning environment. Participants will learn about marine stewardship and the amazing marine ecosystem on which we live. We are recruiting high school students from around the county for each Saturday workshop with the goal of building a stronger community between local high school students, and of introducing those students to college student/post graduate guides and the Salish Sea boating community. High school students that participate in this program will also get free rowboat/SUP/sit-on-top kayak rentals through the 2018 season!
We will have 6 brand new
RS Quest sailboats
for classes, camps and to rent!
RS Quest sailboats are specifically designed for people (youth and adults) who are taking up the pursuit of sailing. They help sailors gain confidence and experience by keeping them engaged without becoming overwhelmed. They also accommodate more intermediate skill development such as spinnaker handling.
Enroll your kids in summer camp and give them the gift of sailing an RS Quest! Camps fill fast so check Summer Camp and After-School Camp for details.
