Here are a few photos from our recent rescue training session

 

Our New Member of Staff Vinnie Showing us His Canoe Rescue Skills on the Famous Symonds Yat Rapids

Throw bag Skills – Safe & Correct use and also putting into practice many scenarios.


We put ourselves into many situations that a customer may encounter and thought a lot about how to get out of the situation easily and quickly.

This also included in successfully Flipping a “Sparred” Canoe. These are Virtually impossible to capsize and as you can see with a few experienced instructors it is possible to capsize one. But we managed to get it back upright and empty in 5 minutes.
