Event Details

Because they are efficient over long distances and in windy conditions, Greenland paddles are becoming more popular every year for kayak touring. Their shape reduces stress on elbow and shoulder joints while giving smooth and controllable power on the water.

Your instructor will be sheerwater and wood duck kayak designer Eric Schade who has been building these excellent West Greenland-style paddles for years.

In this two day workshop you'll learn to carve a traditional paddle sized to meet your personal needs, from a solid plank and finished with a coating of linseed oil. These paddles are beautiful, exquisitely llight, and made by you.

Special note: There is an additional materials cost of $20. 

 

This class takes place in the Museum's Boatshop on Saturday, October 19 and Sunday, October 20, 2013 from 8am to 4pm.
