This class provides an opportunity for you to learn how to help yourself and your paddling friends whenever you run into trouble on a whitewater river.
Examples of what is covered during the weekend include:
• How to throw and catch a throw rope
• Simple mechanical advantage systems
• Swimming with and without your boat/paddle
• Wading in current
• Boat-based rescues - boat-over-boat, T-rescues, bow rescues, deep water re-entry
This course will be taught by Swiftwater Rescue trained instructors. Students will need to have some basic comfort with their paddling skills ON WHITEWATER before embarking on the training. A roll is not necessary in order to take this class. You must furnish and keep up with your own equipment for the class.
