During this course we look at different types of rescue tools, such as throw lines, tow lines, knives, webbing, and karabiners. We also will look at rescues and self rescues in a range of craft including: kayaks, sea kayaks, sit on tops, canoes and fragile craft.

During this course we will look at the different types of tool used in a rescue and what these may be used for, such as throw lines, tow lines, knives, webbing, and karabiners.
We also will cover executing rescues and self rescues in a range of craft including: kayaks, sea kayaks, sit on tops, canoes and fragile craft.
At Fluid Adventures we strongly advise all paddlers who are enthusiastic about being on the water, in canoes or kayaks, take part in this course. We feel that it is essential to know how to rescue yourself, and others, should things go wrong whilst afloat - we particularly recommend it to club paddlers, families, and groups of friends. We feel so strongly about this, that we provide it at a lower fee then many other providers.
British Canoeing's aims:
This training course aims to provide paddlers with the key safety and rescue skills required to operate safely and to be able to deal with common emergencies. These skills form the foundations for safety and rescue throughout BC qualifications.
The award has two purposes;
• To provide the paddler with the necessary skills which will enable them to ensure the safety of themselves and others
• To provide the paddler with the appropriate rescue skills which can be used to help themselves and/or others in difficulty
Attendees need to be able to accurately control their craft to get into a position to rescue, you'll also need to be comfortable in the water, as part of this course will require you to be a victim, as well as the heroic rescuer!
Please note that being a 'victim' will include having to perform multiple capsizes using a spray deck.
Also, save 25% if booked at the same time as a BC 2 Star Course!
