Paddling during the Raid the North Extreme--Canadian Yukon

Join adventure racer and adventure race director Kip Koelsch for this introductory clinic on the basics of paddling kayaks and canoes for adventure racing. Kip will cover teamwork in canoes, paddling canoes with kayak paddles, forward strokes, maneuvering strokes, outfitting your boats for racing and training for paddling. We spend time on the water as well as on land and in the classroom.

Currently a race director at WeCeFAR and Bill Jackson’s employee, Kip is a two-time overall winner of the Florida Coast to Coast Adventure Race, a two-time member of the US Canoe/Kayak Marathon Team and a three-time finisher of the Colorado River 100. He has raced all over the US—Georgia, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, Nevada and California—and all over the world—Borneo, Canadian Yukon, British Virgin Islands, Trinidad and Newfoundland.

Fee: $68 per person

Register by calling Bill Jackson’s Shop for Adventure at 727-576-4169 or online at

Get a jump on the competition as you know that many of our Florida races involve a significant amount of paddling!
