June Novice Practices

Now that the water is starting to warm up, we’d like to begin offering some novice practices for new or prospective members, or seasoned club members who would like more time to work on technique in the outriggers.

For June, we’ll plan to have Saturday novice practices on June 8 and June 22 at 10am; please arrive at 9:45 to the Cornell Sailing Center.  Plan to be on the water for 1-1.5 hours.  Please email blair.johnson@gmail.com if you are interested in attending, so that we are sure we have enough new members and/or club members to fill the boats and have a great practice.  If you would like to try paddling but weekends are not convenient for you, send me an email and we can arrange a crew on a weeknight to go out.

Novices are also encouraged to sign up for regular club practices (particularly on Sunday) if they have paddling experience.  Fill out the forms under “practice sign up” on the right hand side, and please leave your contact information so that we can get in touch with you if practice is canceled.

New members will need to sign a waiver (available at practice).  There is also a $10 fee for new paddlers; if you choose to join COCC, this will be applied towards your dues.

Please wear synthetic clothing and shoes that can (and will) get wet.  Don’t bring anything with you that you can’t bear to lose or get wet!  Paddles and PFDs will be provided.

Hope to see you on the water!
