Paddlecoach Jessica Rando comes to Soposup

We are super excited to announce that Jessica Rando will be coming to Maine on July 12th and 13th to teach a series of paddling clinics through Soposup. Jessica is a professional athlete and paddler, winning numerous gold medals in Dragonboat racing before turning to Standup Paddleboarding a few years ago, where she has already won over a dozen first place finishes. But more importantly, she is a great teacher and a ton of fun to be around.
Here is the schedule of events:
>Saturday the 12th from 1:00-2:15pm Stroke Clinic. This will include both on-land and on-water components and serve to create a solid foundation for proper stroke technique.
max participants = 10
>Saturday 2:45-4:00pm Race Skills Clinic. This clinic will teach you about race-specific strategies and techniques such as buoy turns, drafting, stroke rate, beach dismounts etc.
max participants = 10
At 4:30pm, Jessica will take part in the Cushings Island Race, and you are encouraged to register for this to put your new skills to the test. Cost is $75 for one session or $125 for both. If you sign up for both, you are automatically registered for the Cushings Island Race Series.

Then on Sunday from 9:00am to 10:15am Jessica will hold a Intro to Paddling for women, with an emphasis on SUP as an everyday fitness tool for women. This class is $75 and will cap out at 10 participants.

Jessica likes to keep her classes small, so sign up early to be guaranteed a spot. You can sign-up through the shop, and e-mail or call with any questions.
