Boat Handling Fun day
Our popular boat handling courses are "fun days" focusing on personal technical skills. It is a course aimed towards the dynamic environment around rocks and along a rock shoreline. Which techniques do we use? How do we read the water to see where it is safe or not? A fun Sunday for you who wants to take their paddling one step further and shape up the strokes and/or head out towards the bouncy stuff.
- Dynamic forwards and backwards
- Simplifying positioning strokes static and on the move
- Boat trim
- Timing in wind and waves
- Low and high bracing
- Catching ang bailing out
- Setting up a safe zone
- Mental awareness for muscle relaxation
Depending on the weather the focus points of the course may vary. We will always have a "build up" so that everybody feels comfortable with the environment and that it is a suitably challenged for the group with in the stretch zone. Continues communication with in the group through out the day and "safe zones" for reviewing the different sessions.
09am to 10am- Day starts with a short introduction of the group presentation of the possibilities that the day may offer.
10am to 12.30am - Warm up and shaping up of techniques using the environment to our advantage. Finding land or water based spots to read dynamic water before we start to slowly interact with the dynamic water.
01.00pm - 05.00pm - Increasing our interaction and using the environment for personal development.
This course is suitable for people with some prior experience aiming to work on their personal technical skills towards moving water. You should be familiar with "wet exit" and have a least tried a rescue before.
