The Sea Kayak group is offering four winter pool practice sessions at the South County YMCA.

The dates are: January 14, January 28, February 11, and March 10. 

We are charging a $10.00 fee to help cover some of the costs, RICKA is subsidising the remaining costs.These sessions are open to RICKA members only and are a great opportunity to sharpen your rolling and rescue skills, and perhaps meet some like-minded paddlers. If you are not a RICKA member, you can join RICKA here.

Please arrive by 11:45 to unload boats and fill out forms. Our time slot is 12:15 to 2:15.  Boats must be clean and free of sand and seaweed.

All participants must also sign an ACA insurance/waiver form. Please bring your ACA number if you are an ACA member.

There will be 10 signup slots available for each session. We will do our best to give everyone an opportunity to attend at least one session. Please email Rich Coupland at to be put on the sign-up email list for each session.
If you sign up and subsequently cannot attend, PLEASE contact Rich before the day of event so he can contact an alternate to fill your slot.

The South County YMCA is located at 165 Broad Rock Road, Peace Dale, RI 02883. Upon entering the parking lot the pool entrance is to the left of the main entrance.
