Kayak Rescue Clinic

Hello paddlers! I've had some requests to do some rescue clinics. Self-rescue and assisted rescue skills are mandatory for every paddler!! You don't want to be a danger to yourself or a liability to others! It is arguable that being able to get back in your boat after a capsize is the single most important paddling skill. Learn how to get back in your boat, how to empty it, how to help others get back in their boats, and how to use various pieces of safety gear such as pumps, paddle floats, airbags, and tow rigs.

This class is for sea kayaks.  Attendees should have a spray skirt, a pump, a paddle float, some rope, lifejacket, paddle, and be ready to get very wet!

The class will start right at 10 am and go until about 2 pm.

Cost is $50 for meetup members who have paid their member fee/$60 for those who have not.

      Hi Gene, this class was specifically for sit in kayaks. Would you like me to hold a class to sit on tops?

      I have sore left arm and shoulder to prove how 'great' I did paddle dancing.

    Fantastic! Weather was perfect. I gotta say I feel much more confident on the water now and would recommend this class to everyone with a kayak. Thanks for lessons Chuck, looking forward to your next class.

    I certainly wish I could attend but have a conflict.
