Lumpy water rescue training
Saturday, August 25, 2018, 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM
This is an ACA sanctioned event. All participants must wear a PFD. Non-HASK participants must sign a waiver. See all rules at the bottom of this page.
This course will focus on rescues in lumpy water. I am hoping that conditions will not exceed L2 level, but we may need to improvise if conditions require.
All participants must use a spray skirt, and be able to do a wet exit with it on.
Kayaks must have bow and stern bulkheads. No kayaks will be allowed to participate if they only have a stern bulkhead. Your kayak should have deck lines. If your kayak does not qualify, please seek a loaner for this training.
Please arrive at Bayshore Park in time to be ready to launch at 9 AM. We will start with a brief discussion of safety, conditions, agenda, etc.
Final student numbers will depend on how may trainers I can get. FOR SAFETY REASONS, IF I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TRAINERS FOR ALL STUDENTS I MAY HAVE TO TAKE STUDENTS OFF, BASED ON REGISTRATION ORDER. I REALLY hope this will not be necessary.
This is an ACA sanctioned event. Every participant must wear a PFD.
