ConnYak has arranged for the Town of Cheshire to open its pool to sea kayakers (open to members and non-members alike) on Sundays, from 9 to noon, on Jan. 7 & 21, Feb. 4 & 25, and Mar. 18. Many thanks to longtime member Rusty for setting this up.
There is an entrance fee of $12 (cash preferred, or check, payable to Town of Cheshire at the door).
The Cheshire Town Pool is an excellent facility where you can develop and practice skills and rescues. There's plenty of parking, easy access to the pool, shower facilities to change into kayaking gear and lifeguards on duty. We thank the Town of Cheshire for making it available to the kayaking public. Please note that the pool is a public facility and we will be sharing it with Cheshire residents. As a courtesy, be sure your kayak is clean.
A section of shallow water is available for teaching purposes and deeper water for practice. While formal instruction is not provided, if you have been to a ConnYak pool session before, you know there is usually someone there willing to spot you on a roll or help you work on a rescue skill.
A post-practice "de-briefing" is entirely likely.
Hope to see you there.
PS -- Although not required for attendance, your support of the club's activities is much appreciated.
