We are rescheduling this class, originally posted for Monday, July 28, due to weather.
This course is all about being able to take care of yourself and other people in your group when they are in trouble. Learn multiple ways of: 1) getting yourself back in your boat after a capsize, 2) getting capsized paddling partners back into their boats quickly and safely AND 3) getting weak or incapacitated paddlers to shore or a safe area. For part of the session we’ll work on variations of self-rescues and assisted rescues, as well as scoop rescues. Then we’ll switch to the multiple forms of swimmer rescues (back deck & bow carries) and towing including contact tows, in-line tows and rafted in-line tows. If you want to be a serious and safe paddler, you need to have command of this stuff. This course will be an intense and wet session.
