Are you interested in a Greenland kayak paddle course?

The Cowichan Bay Maritime Centre is considering running a Greenland kayak paddle course during the fall season, provided there is interest. This course would teach the start to finish construction of the paddle, and you would be able to take home your project at the end of the course. Pictured here is an example of what you would learn to construct in this program. Please contact us if you or someone you know may be interested in a course like this.
