White-Water Kayaking on the Deerfield River

Earlier this year I signed up for a Novice 2-Day Whitewater Kayaking Clinic with Zoar Outdoor. I drove out the their base in Charlemont, MA on Friday and setup camp. They have onsite camping and it was a very nice setup. The focus of the clinic was to learn paddle strokes, technique, etc. We did some practice on flat water and after moved down to the fife brook section of the river and practiced eddy turns. On the second day we did some more practice and then ran the fife brook to just before Zoar gap rapid. I really learned a lot over the weekend and had a great time. Their guides are very helpful and provide great instruction.
