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, the understanding of emotional influences on the group during a crisis and getting the basics right.
5 years ago we had a live indecent 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
