Chart Workshop

Our Paddle club is offering members a 3 hour workshop on understanding/using charts for Navigation specifically for paddlers and including a quick primer on tides and currents.  Doug Taylor, a longtime member and local kayak guru is an expert paddler and adventurer and teaches these workshops locally and also at the Pacific Paddling Symposium.

He is a Paddle Canada Level 4 paddler, Level 2 Instructor, Basic Kayak Instructor Trainer, and a Level 1 Guide with SKGABC. He was the BC representative on the Board of Paddle Canada from 2008 to early 2013. In 2008, he and Jonathan Reggler leisurely paddled around Vancouver Island…….he has the knowledge and experience [and teaching skills!] to give a great workshop!
