This Moving Water Canoe Safety and Rescue Clinic provides the opportunity to practice commonly used moving water river rescue skills. Unlike moving water skill courses that emphasize paddling skills, this clinic emphasizes moving water safety and rescue skills.
This course focuses on the fundamental skills, knowledge, and manoeuvres of rescuing paddlers and equipment in moving water situations from a paddler’s respective.
The material practiced in this clinic comes from the Paddle Canada Moving Water Canoe Program. This clinic is to provide an opportunity for paddlers to have more practice in rescues. It does not seek to replace the need for swiftwater rescue training or other similar training.
