2016 M2M and KWC Prep Clinics Completed

Thanks to the paddlers that attended and to the the very kind comments. Kai was the lead instructor and thoroughly enjoyed passing on his knowledge and giving thrill rides in the double.

The M2M and KWC race had ideal conditions this year. Congratulations to all in the clinics for successfully completing the race.

Pictures are available on Facebook and videos are on our Youtube channel. Special thanks to Kaete Heiderich for the M2M pictures and to Norm Watsek for a lot of the KWC pictures.
