Capsize recovery and tow rescue practice on Msn Bay

Let's do it this Saturday Dec 1st East Mission bay, South of the Visitor Center but North of The Hilton at Noon. We can practice Rescues and I'd like to try towing since we ran into a situation where that would have been good a few weeks ago. No instructors have signed up so it'll just be us in a nice sheltered cove.

(I'd like to get some capsize recovery and towing practice on Mission Bay. The only way to keep those ideas fresh in my head is to practice them once in a while. Anybody interested in practicing our newly learned skills from the Kayak Symposium?)

    I'd love to do this, but have other plans tomorrow. I think some folks on the RSVP list aren't coming - I know Andrea's on a camping trip

      That event had been up there for ever so when Gayle said she wanted to do it and so did I, I just figured go for it, four people showed up it was good. Don't know how to take people off of events, not sure you even can.

      Jim, Ah...I got it. You turned an idea into an event. In order to remove people or change who's leading an event, you have to be an asst organizer. I'll fix and remove my name. Thanks.

    Thanks Jim, Gayle and Jen. I am happy to know I can get out of my new boat and even back into it, although as a cowboy I kept getting bucked off.

    Thanks Jen for bringing my technique into this century.

    Gayle, Jordon and Jen thanks to all of you for coming out, it was a good time, thanks to Jen for letting me use your tow rope (man am I sore:) and the tips. Let's do it again some time!

    Excellent practice. Just what I needed. Thanks everyone! We should all do that at least once, better twice a year. Special thanks to Jen for showing up, coaching us along, and teaching us some new techniques.

    I want to go and trying to convince the wife we need practice. She is concerned about winter conditions. I am concerned about rain and run-off. Anyone else concerned about water quality?

    November 30, 2012

    • Jim C.

      Not really concerned, hope you make it out today.

      December 1, 2012

  • Jim C.

    Jen, it would be great if you came out, I don't really like to change the place at the last minute though. It gets confusing, and people do show up to these events without either committing online or double checking the morning of to see of it's still on.

    I'll be South of the visitor center in the little cove pictured in the map above just north of the Hilton.

    Hope you can make it.

  • Gayle

    I'm still up for it. We can always do some basic practice in shallow water where you can avoid putting your head under, if the water is too muddy looking.

    December 1, 2012

  • Jen

    Jordan, sorry, I don't rent dry suits. Your wife can participate as much or as little as she wants! Helping others back into their kayaks is good practice too! I'd be going out with this group at noon. If gayle & Jim don't respond, I'll meet you guys at the visitor center. You can call the shop tomorrow just to double check....([masked]

    Hi Jen,
    I look forward to the opportunity to learn from you. What time do you think of going out? Still trying to convince my wife though. Do you rent dry suits?

    November 30, 2012

  • Jen

    It's a super slow weekend at Aqua Adventures and I have some time to kill....the water quality will be better near the ocean tomorrow. Anybody up for meeting at Aqua Adventures and I'll go out with you guys for a bit and show you some stuff. I've got a new toy I want to play with too! I'll wear my dry suit and be your crash test dummy. Cheap kayak and wetsuit rentals if anyone needs!

    Do you have in mind any particular techniques? I have a good book with several options (one of Derek Hutchinson's).

    November 28, 2012

    • Jim C.

      I was thinking T Rescue, Paddle Float, maybe Cowboy. YouTube is a good place to see some in action but books are good too :)

    Anyone up for this Saturday Mission Bay?

    1 · November 25, 2012

    • Dave B.

      I only have Wednesdays and Sundays off.

      November 26, 2012

    • Gayle

      That looks good to me. Easier to get to and park than San Juan Cove in South Mission that I was thinking of. Go ahead and post it, maybe we'll get a few more bites. (Sorry about sending previous reply off to the internet equivalent of a dead letter box.)

  • Jim C.

    I work Sunday through Wednesday

    I'd love to do this. It's been several years since I even tried capsize and recovery. If you don't count the time I went into the drink last year off the dock and then I had others about to haul me out red-faced. But it would have to be weekends for me. I don't mind doing it in cold winter water on a shallow beach (I can think of a few places where that would work, with the right tides). But I can see how some people might find that daunting.

  • Lisa

    I would be interested in a refresher on recovery and tow.

    September 19, 2012

  • Scott

    This would be a great thing to learn.....any ideas on when it's gonna happen?

    1 · June 30, 2012

  • Jim C.

    Yes! Have Thursday, Friday and Saturday off from work.

  • Heidi

    August waters present the ideal environment for self=recovery practice!
