Enjoy a weekend spent at my home on 40 acres of hardwoods along the beautiful Betsie River. You'll be treated to a series of skills workshops on Lower Herring lake followed by a Sunday trip on Lake Michigan to practice your new skills. We will introduce you to all the basic strokes, safety skills, group rescues and even some surf technique. Two comfortable nights lodging, several fine meals and equipment are all provided. You'll be able to swap stories over a glass of wine next to the fireplace or have a walk through the woods to the river when you are not out on the water.
Day 1: After dinner Friday evening arrival between 7-9 pm. Get acquainted and settled. Orientation for the rest of the weekend.
Days 2: Saturday morning basics skills workshop followed by lunch on the lake. Afternoon beyond basics and rescue skills. Farmer John/Jane wetsuits recommended. After dinner on your own.
Day 3: After a fine Sunday brunch, we'll gear up for a 3 hour day trip on Lake Michigan (weather permitting) to hone your techniques and enjoy a little open water practice. We'll turn you loose for home or other adventures at about 2 pm.
