On Saturday and Sunday,
Summer  instruction in freestyle
canoeing will be offered by Karen Knight, an internationally acclaimed
freestyle canoeist and instructor.

 "As a student of Ms. Knight, I can attest to her
excellent instructional
methods and also to the positive influence freestyle technique has had
in all aspects of my canoeing experience from touring to whitewater. If
canoeing engages you, I recommend broadening your experience and
improving your overall skill through this dimension in paddling. It will
definitely refresh the relationship with your canoe!
" I think Randa said this

weekday/weekends), or my e-mail, .  A course outline
will be provided if you wish to register for the program.

Here is a definition
Karen came up with
What is Freestyle Canoeing?  Some people refer to this form of flat water canoeing as "the art and science of quiet water paddling," while others liken it to figure skating on water or Tai Chi with a canoe. Done in a solo or tandem canoe, this graceful form of paddling emphasizes fine boat control and paddle precision. In addition, freestyle helps to enhance body awareness, coordination and balance, thus allowing you to be one with your boat and the water. These advanced techniques may be applicable on quiet water or whitewater, destination or non-destination paddling. A small number of freestyle canoeists find pleasure paddling their boats to music, thus making freestyle an interpretive, expressive experience. In essence freestyle will add performance and fun to any paddling adventure.
