Learn the skills and practice them in the conditions where you will likely need them
Instructors: Bill Vonnegut & Jillian Rivas-Davila
This course is designed to introduce paddlers to risk assessment, and tactics for managing safety while on the water. This includes ways to move groups safely through environments, repair boats, and perform rescues. This course will move your focus from personal skills, to thinking about the group and the environment. We will deal with developing the logical thought process and understanding of emotional influences on the group during a crisis.
Some years ago we had a live incident on the California coast. This is an example of how we can learn from experience and improved our paddling safety. Here is the story and a video of the event: 15 Minute Rock Garden Rescue
