To train everyone that comes how to rescue themselves and other efficiently, effectively, and safely. We will be following the guidelines of the American Canoe Association Swiftwater rescue curriculum.
We will be emphasizing topics that pertain to group and site-specific needs.
May 18-19, 2019
Responsibility on the river comes with proper safety knowledge. We hold a rescue course at the end the season to train folks that learned to kayak over to summer and folks that need a refresher, so that they can be more helpful in a situation if one should arise. We will be covering boat-based rescues, throw ropes techniques, foot entrapments, and more. Itinerary is fluid to cover subjects the group wants to focus on.
Steve-O’s courses are very hands on– so don’t expect a lot of classroom time, but expect a lot of doing and practicing skills!
