Colorado Whitewater has partnered with Nik White at Whitewater Workshop for an ACA Swiftwater Rescue Clinic for only $200 this year which is 20% off of list price! This clinic is for all Colorado Whitewater members who are kayakers, canoeists, rafters, duckie captains or just like splashing around in the river.
Somewhere, at sometime, you will wish you knew what to do in a river emergency. Just rescuing gear can turn into a nightmare, never mind rescuing a person. Quick response time and the knowledge to set up a rescue safely are skills you should have as a boater. Make this the year to bring your rescue skills to a higher level. Friends owe it to friends to be capable of river rescue. Kayakers must be of Class II-III ability. Rescue lifejackets are considered personal equipment and are highly recommended.
As this course is open to all types of boaters, we will not be doing much boat based rescue. If you'd like some time to practice additional boat based rescue skills, you can sign up for an additional half day with Nik after this class. That half day class also will complete everything you need for an assessment to receive a card. If you do need an assessment for a job (or just want an extra half day of boat-based rescues) please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Course questions should be directed to the Instructor Nik White,
General questions about Safety at CW should be directed to CW's Safety Director Sarah Mass
Note: This clinic will be customized based on river features, water levels and students needs and skills.
Class will held at the Historic South Platte Hotel .
