July 27 Skills practice session: re-entries, rescues, recoveries - change in venue!


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

We're all between swims, but that's not necessarily a bad thing!

Join Janet and Steph for a day of practicing re-entries, rescues, recoveries, and general in-water shenanigans. It's July, the weather is hot, may as well go swimming! We will practice solo and assisted re-entries using a variety of techniques in a protected area, and potentially head out to a more dynamic area if the group desires and conditions allow. Bring any tools you want to practice with (paddle float/stirrup/tow belt) - the organizers will have some to try as well.

Location: Odiorne State Park (NOTE CHANGE IN VENUE!)

Please be ready for a 9:30am beach briefing followed by launch.

What You Need to Bring:  Kayak with bulkheads, a spray skirt, and deck lines. PFD, paddles, hat or helmet, dress for immersion, sunscreen, lunch or snacks, and water.

We use ACA insurance for skills sessions.  You need to either be an ACA member (join here for $40/year) or pay a $10 event fee here.

Note that this is a peer-facilitated practice session. This is not professional instruction, although we can certainly refer you to some excellent coaches for that as well.

We hope to see you there!

Any questions? Please post below and we'll respond!
