Sea Kayaking Class at LL Bean

While I've paddled alot on lakes and flat rivers, I haven't done any ocean kayaking.  It's been a goal of mine to start exploring Maine's coastal islands, so to prepare for that I took an introduction to sea kayaking class at LL Bean this weekend and camped at Bradbury Mountain State Park.

The class was informative and covered kayaking basics such as boat selection and stroke mechanics.   Having been self taught, I picked up many useful techniques to make myself a better kayaker.   The afternoon was spent practicing one and two boat rescues.  The class was small (4 people) and the two instructors were excellent.
