img_8927_1Where: Maine Sport Outfitters Boat Shop

When: Saturday, November 12th, 1pm – 5pm

Maine Sport Outfitters is offering a Cold Water Immersion Workshop from Suz Hutchinson of New England Kokatat and paddler who frequents the chilly waters of Maine. This event requires pre-registration and is limited by the number and size of the drysuits in Suzanne’s fleet of demos. Call the Maine Sport Outfitters Outdoor Programs Department at 207.236.8797 to save your spot.

There is a no cost to register for this course and this is an event where participants will have the opportunity to test a Kokatat Drysuit. This workshop will discuss the dangers of cold water paddling, review cold water physiology, recognizing hypothermia, and will highlight the appropriate dress for cold conditions. After the discussion, participant’s will get suited up into drysuits and then move to Rockport Harbor where each individual will have the opportunity to experience immersion in cold ocean water. Special pricing on Kokatat products will be given to those who attend the event.

If you are interested in participating in the “Get Wet” portion of this workshop, please be sure to reserve a drysuit for the day. These are available on a first come, first serve basis. If you plan to demo a drysuit, please bring a form fitting fleece for use underneath, wool/fleece socks, and shoes that can be worn over the bulky dry suit socks. If you own gloves and hats for paddling, please bring these with you.
