Class description: Let’s figure out how to get back in or on our boats after a capsize! Rescues are perishable skills—even if you’re familiar with them, it’s important to practice them regularly. We’ll focus on wet exits, assisted rescues, self-rescues, and using assistive tools like paddle floats and stirrups. This session is open to paddlers of all skill levels and sit-in or sit-on-top kayaks. Come prepared to fall over, get wet, sort out situations, and laugh a lot!

What to bring: Spray skirt, paddle float, stirrup, dive mask or goggles, nose plugs. If you do not have a paddle float or stirrup, we can provide them.

Bring your own lunch and drinks and enjoy socializing with your fellow members at the noon picnic after the training, at Shelter #5. 

Cancellations: If you need to cancel, please do so on the TBSK website so that another member may take your place.
