Hi guys, I'm writing to you guys to gauge interest in members of the club willing or wishing to participate in a level 1 whitewater rescue course.
It's a single day course, held on grade 1-2 water. Covering the following topics:
Managing basic whitewater rescues Throwbagging: dry land
Defensive whitewater swimming in a current
Aggressive whitewater swimming in a current
Throwbagging: on water in a current
X rescues in moving water
Deck carry across a current
Gear retrieval from a current
Wrap-up and evaluation.
This course is aimed at the "under 3" paddling group, as this represents a large proportion of paddlers in TAS that are very active, particularly in the peak paddling season.
Canoe Tas is also keen on providing a pathway for further skill development in this area. IE level two or even level 3 courses in the future.
Feel free to contact me via email or phone on 0407099801.
