Learn to creek boat from the first Green Race Winner, Clay Wright!

(Registration Deadline—April 4, 2015)

Appalachian Paddling Enthusiasts (APEs) is pleased to announce the second of its Paddle with the Pros clinics, this time by hosting an Intermediate Creeking Clinic with Clay Wright.  Clay is a six-time U.S. Freestyle team member, creeking pioneer and member of Team Jackson.  He has appeared in over 50 kayaking videos, has first descents in 11 states and 5 countries, and has won numerous extreme races throughout the world, including the first Green Race.

This one day course is designed for the intermediate level aspiring creek boater.  No previous creeking experience is necessary although strong intermediate kayaking skills (CL 3+) and a solid roll are required.  The course will take place on a river similar to Wilson’s Creek in difficulty and specific location will be determined as we get closer to the date. The class will be limited to 10 students.  If you’ve thought about getting into creeking this is your chance!  Send in your registration form and payment to take advantage of this outstanding and rare opportunity to learn from one of the world’s best.
