      Learn paddling basics and more – discover kayaking at these fun, information-packed workshops at the MSU Sailing Center on Lake Lansing.  You will learn:

               All about types of kayaks, equipment , appropriate clothing, and safety gear

               Launching, landing, and transporting kayaks

               How to efficiently maneuver a kayak in lakes and quiet rivers

               Common hazards faced by kayakers and how to avoid them

               What to do in case of a capsize:  safety and rescue skills on the water


      Each class is a 3 ½ hour one-session workshop, including dry land topics and lots of on-the-water paddling.  All equipment provided:  the latest new demo kayaks from Summit Sports, paddles, and life jackets.


      Beginner sessions:  for those with little or no experience, or who have never had any formal instruction.
