Sea Kayak Rescue technique

Pool Sessions are all about trying out new skills and getting wet in a warm safe environment. Maldon Canoe Club run special ‘Rescue Sessions’ which are focused on the skills and techniques needed to rescue yourself and others in a variety of craft (general purpose kayaks, sea kayaks and canoes)

Would you know what to do if you or your friend capsized?

• How would you get the water out of the boat so its buoyant again?

• How would you get back into the boat without capsizing again or letting water back in?

These are just a few of the questions every paddler should ask themselves – if the answer is, don’t know or not sure, then you’d definitely benefit from one of our pool sessions.

The training is useful for all members whether you are the victim being rescued or the hero rescuing the swimmer, and let’s remember – you never know when you are going to take that unexpected swim!

Ask one of the coaches, if you’d like to learn more about rescues techniques, they’ll be more than happy to help.
