Kayaking counts as a hig-risk activity because of the element of water. Kayaking does not really have to be associated with danger if you are aware of the risks and can adapt to them. A lot of people paddle today without either safetyequipment or the knowledge on how to act if you would fall off the kayak. During this evening we go through the most important things for you as a relatively new kayaker or for you who haven’t practiced rescues or towing. I will mostly be focused on you who does short trips and daytrips.
During the evening we will go through necessary safetyequipment and how to use it. We will prectice different types of rescues, which are a necessity to know in case you or your friend of some reason would overturn. We will also learn how we can tow a friend if that’s what the situation demands. We will also be “swimming” in some excercises so depending on the watertemperature, it could be nice to do the excercises in a short-sleeved or long-sleeved wetsuit.
After the course night you will be moving a lot safer out on the sea an have more knowledge on how to react in case of an accident.
