    Hi Everyone,

    In helping each other with safety practice for the next season or still paddle in the Fall. I would like to start a pilot run this year of Wet exit, Re-entry and Assisted rescue in Sasamat lake. The idea is to help paddlers, who do not own dry suit, can work in the warm water (for the next season). Others with dry suit are also welcome.

    When: Saturday, August 5th 9:00 Am, on water.

    Where: Parking lot F (the last parking lot). Pay parking in effect, wheel cart needed.

    What to expect:

    Low and high brace,
    Draw strokes and techniques to move around and quickly approach swimmer’s boat.
    Basic wet exit, notifying others while in the water.
    Basic solo entries, with or without paddle float.
    Bow rescue.

    Using stirrup,

    Basic towing. Quick towing a paddler and boat out of danger.

    I know that many of you have years of paddling and trainings, but I believe that if the skills are not maintained, once an accident happens, we never know how to react, or with this practice we get in action quickly to help others on the trip.

    This is a practice session, not a clinic nor a course and I might learn something from you too.

    Should bring kayak wheels if you have. Easy to takedown boats to the beach.

    This is great idea Ted. I can come and help you as well with whatever paddles needs to learn (Assuming I know what I am doing).

    Also I can get some rolling practice as well at the same time.

    See you all next Saturday at 9am.
