Turning

Last year was my first in a kayak. It was a Perception Acadia which has a very flat bottom. I found that turning was mainly adjusting the paddle stroke on either side. I just completed an Osprey Std. and it is such a different craft. I have had it our only 4 times and find that it tracks like crazy and I need some tips on turning. I am beginning to learn how to lean but I am not sure what my paddle technique should be as I enter and during the lean. I also find I can lean to one side much easier than to the other for some reason... Thanks in advance. Wayne
