For kayakers that often paddle on grade 4 & 5 whitewater, and want to improve their safety and rescue skills in a higher level group. We practice rescue skills in realistic scenarios to find out what works and what doesn't when time is against us.

Swiftwater Rescue training especially for river runners. The WRT has been developed for kayakers who don't want to learn all about how to rescue somebody with a raft, a river board or an inflatable fire hose. It is internationally recognized on a parr with Rescue 3's SRT as the standard rescue certification the world over for river runners.

Kayakers who wish to attend this course should be solid grade 4 paddlers, who ideally already have attended a safety course.

Certified by Rescue 3 International.

Course duration: 2 Days

This 2 day course is mostly run over the weekend, with two long days in order to get the most practice time out of a short course. The whole course is practical with one day spent paddling on a local grade 4 river with realistic scenarios along the way.

 

Course Aims:

We aim to improve every paddlers knowledge of the dangers inherent to the harder whitewater environment and how to avoid them. We also aim to improve self rescue knowledge of every paddler.

On harder whitewater group, rescue skills are more important as rescues can be much more demanding. We aim to see what the limits are for every group with the equipment that they have available.

"Kiss - Keep it safe, stupid! Keep your rescue skills up to scratch with the SRT course. It's worth every penny."
