Capsize and Rescue Practice on Saturday 14th July by Bob Hamilton

  • by

Thanks to Carl, Richie and Colin for the time and expertise given.

I doubt that many would willingly capsize, but the experience is invaluable and having others to assist is a big bonus. Practice is essential.

I feel that the small whitewater type kayaks and their use come into quite a different category to the seaboats and it will have been obvious to any that watched, just how  slick a rescue can be in those.

Saturday was a lovely warm and Balmy day. Things would be very different when conditions get colder. Just the amount of clothing and maybe heavier gloves makes things that much more difficult.

I came across a video that may be worth watching. Here is the link :-

Good luck to all
