        Paddling positions and boat trim


        Launching and landing


        Forward, stopping and reverse paddling


        Basic turns while paddling forward

    Our certified instructors deliver the Recreational Canoeing Association of British Columbia’s (RCABC) Basic Tandem course in a full-day session normally held on the Gorge waterway near the VCKC clubhouse.

    All canoeing gear can be provided, however you are encouraged to bring your own equipment if you have it.
