Classes & Activities
Looking for a bit of a challenge, but aren’t ready to traverse steep mountains? The Lost Coast of southern Humboldt County is an area that is unique to the entire coast of California. It is the largest road less area on this coastline, with 25 miles of dynamic ocean views and un-crowded beaches. This trip takes place on the northern segment of the Lost Coast Trail. Though the trail is moderately level, the soft sand and traverse rocks make it an ideal challenge for any backpacker.
Join Center Activities for two full exhilarating days at Big Lagoon and learn to harness the wind on two of the world's most popular and versatile sail boats. We will utilize the Olympic Class Lasers as well as the fun and user-friendly Pico boats that are ideal for entry-level sailing. Each participant will steer and control their own boat. Skills will include rig- ging, sailing theory, boat maneuvering, launching and capsize recovery.
This course will provide a fun and safe environment to learn the base line skills no kayaker should be without. Topics will include boat anatomy, kayak fit, essential equipment, paddle strokes, boat handling, bracing, safety considerations with an emphasis on injury prevention, self and assisted rescues after a capsize. Participants will have the option of trying different styles of kayaks.
