|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 3:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until September 30, 2020

Been paddling for a while and you are ready now to learn ways to get back into our yak from within the water, as well as some kayak games? You have the skills to paddle your kayak around objects, can paddle hours on end, and aren’t worried about falling out of your kayak…….But, what happens when you do? How are you going to get back into your kayak if you are too far away from the shoreline? What happens when your paddle buddy falls in – and you don’t know what your next step is going to be? Need to be more proficient in your kayak abilities? This is the session for you !

In this session, we shall learn how to perform both self and assisted kayak rescues. You will learn, understand, and practice numerous ways to get back in your kayak, should you ever experience a wet exit. For the types of rescues which will be involved, please visit https://silentwake.com/your-skills-training/rescues/

Owners of touring and sea kayaks are welcomed to bring their own yaks for this class – if you are uncertain if your kayak fits into this category, please give us a call and inform us of the make and model of your kayak. Some recreational kayaks may work for this class – but it is much more proficient with kayaks suited for adequate on-water rescues. Since we will be in the water for majority of this session, you should be comfortable with getting wet and performing wet exits. (Yes, you will be asked to preform a wet exit).

Location for this class will be made available once registered – normally it will be either Yahr Park, Random Lake, Big Cedar Lake, or Little Cedar Lake.

Maximum class size is 5.  Sea kayaks and gear available to those who require these items.

Please also register for this to ensure there is availability.

Three to four hour rescue class- Cost $75
