Whitewater River Rescue 1 –

Course: This course is aimed at anyone who uses a paddle on moving rnwater (kayaks, packrafts, sit-on-tops) and wants to know the basics rnabout rescuing themselves and others.  Being able to fall out of your rnboat is the only prerequisite! We'll use the easier rapids above and rnbelow the main rapid so it's not too intimidating. This is also good rnprep before attending a Level 2 Rescue course.
This course is suitable for anyone who  kayaks, packrafts or uses sit-on-tops.
Topics include:
  • basic rescue gear,
  • swimming and moving about in water without a boat,
  • gear and swimmer retrieval,
  • easy throwbagging,
  • communication and teamwork.,
  • ripping rescue yarns.
Bring lunch, drinking water and energy food.
You'llrn be in the water 50% of the time so come dressed for the water rntemperature (sturdy footwear, helmet, pfd, full wetsuit + thermals + cagrn or drysuit).
