Boat/gear rental available from Olympic Outdoor Center, couple days or so advance notice best if you want a boat that is not in their limited on-site rental fleet (call them directly). Dry suit NOT required (but desirable) but if you don't have one then bring a towel and spare clothes just in case. We will briefly review the forward/sweep strokes from last week, then be practicing maneuvering strokes (skulling draw stroke), bow rudder). Time permitting cover reverse paddling.
