Well, we are already at the Lake helping with the Tri so why not improve our skills....???? This is the morning session. Saul has offered to stay around for both sessions with his kayaks.
He also offered to bring his BBQ like he did for the full moon paddle and make some burgers during the afternoon. So if we can get some folks to bring some salad and chips we can have a lunch/BBQ and skills session. Saul is the best!!!
We will be working on specific things. I have put together a list of things I would like to try to address.
Organizers on hand - Saul, Larry, Martin, Lynda
Rescue practice :
1. Wet Exit
2. Self rescue - Paddle float / Rescue stirrup / Cowboy up
3. Assisted rescue - T -rescue / Buddy Roll / Hand of God
Towing practice :
In Line tow / Contact Tow /Single & Double tow
Rolling practice : Paddle Float Roll / Reenter and Roll
You can look at these at http://paddling.about.com/od/safetyprecautions/tp/Sea-Kayaking-Safety-Rescues.htm and you can probably find examples to watch on YouTube.
I will be hanging around after the triathlon to help folks out with their skills and am sure we will have lots of help. Saul will be hanging round with his kayaks for the afternoon.
We will have Saul's kayaks around for both sessions. I will add kayakers to the sessions according to how many organizers we have sign on to help.
If you can - sign up for the triathlon to help Saul out. And bring some stuff for the BBQ Saul is setting up.
