L3-L4: Angel Island Excursion for Women (2 Days)

Please visit River and Ocean's site to book. 

Kelly and Laura are leading this 2-day clinic is designed for paddlers looking to take their basic sea kayaking skills to the next level. On day 1, we will review fundamental strokes and safety in Horseshoe Cove before heading out to the Yellow Bluff tide race. Once at the tide race, you will have the opportunity to learn and practice fundamental paddling techniques used in current, including peel outs, eddy catching, and ferry gliding. For those who are interested, playing in the rough water and waves of the tide race, will be supported and encouraged! The evening will be spent in the quaint Marin Headlands Hostel where your Cali Collective hosts will provide dinner.

On day 2, we will leave the protected waters of Horseshoe Cove and paddle to Angel Island. We will discuss how to find and interpret current flow information for San Francisco Bay and apply this knowledge on our journey. After spending the day exploring Angel Island, we will return to the mainland for our weekend wrap-up.
