Kayak Safety & Demo Day
May 22, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Oyster Creek Boathouse, located at 15910 Creekbend Drive near Fluor, is open again this year for homeowners to enjoy kayaking on Oyster Creek. To help with that enjoyment, FCCSA is sponsoring a kayak safety and demo class on the basics of kayaking. It will be held at the boathouse on Saturday, May 22 from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. The class will cover the safe use of a kayak, boarding and exiting a kayak and paddling basics. There is no charge for this class and pre-registration is not required.
The class will be given by Al Ohliger. Al is a TP&W instructor and Regional Safe Boating Chief. He is also a US Coast Guard Auxiliary Master Instructor and Boy Scout Canoeing & Kayaking Merit Badge Counselor. After everyone is comfortable with learning the kayaking techniques on land, everyone will be given the opportunity to practice their kayaking skills on the water.
