   An ACA Coastal Kayak Day- Trip Leading Skills Assessment (ACA certified trip leader) workshop with Chris Raab will be taking place on Sat. May 4 and Sun. May 5 at Lake Sebago in Harriman State Park.   Assessment Overview: This course is intended to
provide the minimum skills and training necessary for an adult leader
possessing basic paddling skills (see prerequisite below) to lead a trip for
participants with beginner level paddling skills, in gentle conditions, with
apparent wind not exceeding 10 knots, waves not exceeding 1 foot and currents to
2 knots. The emphasis of this course is trip leading, safety education and
rescue, not paddling instruction. The content is relevant for clubs, camps,
scouts and other entities providing trips.  You should possess Level II paddling skills. There is a limit to the class size so please respond now if you are interested. The fee is $200 which includes food (lunch for both days, breakfast for Sunday) and the daily ACA fee for both days. There will be a camp potluck on Sat. night where this class will participate ( you can bring something simple like drinks or dessert, there will be plenty entrees so you do not need to cook). 
If there are any questions regarding this workshop, please feel free to email me at surenoproblem27@ yahoo.com.
