Open Practice


Spending time in your boat is the best way to improve and build confidence. Supplement the skills you have been working on. Meet other paddlers in the Potomac River Community.

Location: Lock 6 on the Potomac River

Our instructors have perfected this session so that every skill level will leave having gained confidence in their skills. Not only will  instructors be there to help you with what you need, but often our intermediate and advanced paddlers join too and can offer their wisdom and give you the insiders tips. We meet next to trailer at Lock 6. From there we will work individually on the skills you need to work on whether it be rolling, bracing, or wet exits.

In all beginner-level classes boats are provided. Kayaks are hardshell with an enclosed cockpit like Liquid Logic Remixes or Dagger Mambas.

If you have not been to Lock 6 before, please email the office letting us know where you will be coming from. Clara Barton is only open to traffic exiting the city on weekday evenings so we can help with directions.
