Description: Would you like to become more confident in your kayak rescues ? You probably spend a lot of time learning all the kayak paddle strokes and learning to make you kayak move but have you learnt all about rescuing yourself and others while out on the water. Since running courses I have found peoples perceptions of how easy it is to rescue themselves differs from reality. This is the perfect course for you if your out in a kayak with friends or part of a group.
During your day with me you will get to learn all about rescuing others including using throwlines, Towlines and how to tow a kayak. Kayak rescues including x rescue, T rescue using slings. The fine art of self rescuing while out on the water and rescuing an unconcious paddler while out on your trips.
Alongside this we will have a look at using VHF radios which are a great lifeline. The benefits of a personal locator beacon and using maps and charts to plan your trip . Previous kayak experience needed.
Our course is the perect to learn everything you need to know to be safe out on the water before the summer weather starts and you head out for adventures of your own.
Please bring suitable clothing for the conditions and I can highly recommend a wetsuit as you will be in the water alot ?? hot drinks and food are also advised . Please get in contact on 07735582663.
Please let us know you saw us on What's On in Dorset!
