Date(s) - Jul 31 - Aug 2
If avoiding danger is your goal, this two-day program is for you. Have you ever been on a paddle when, without warning, a rogue wave knocked over a paddling pal or you were flipped by an errant stroke? Knowing what to do and being able to do it quickly can make the difference between a good day on the water with a minor blip and a day that ends up with a call to the Coast Guard.
We will meet on Friday night at the Lighthouse Center, a beautiful facility in Waretown, NJ, where we will socialize & relax. On Saturday, our boats will be moved by trailer to the water (this is sensitive wetlands & we want to reduce our impact as much as possible). We’ll begin with a day of kayak rescues, including T-rescues, bow rescues, Eskimo rescues, re-enter & rolls, and more. We will also introduce you to several tows that can be used in various situations. While we teach technique, we are really focusing on thinking outside the box.
That night, enjoy our signature community dinner & get some rest, because on Sunday, the chaos begins! We will take a journey, during which unexpected & potentially alarming events will occur — and you will have to solve them. At the conclusion of each incident, we will talk about the kayak rescues and offer insight & suggestions on how to improve the response or select an alternative. Whether you lead trips, paddle with friends, or just love to challenge your mind, Weekend of Danger is for you. Suitable for anyone!
