Just like everything else we do in our boats, safety and rescue skills can be fun to learn and practice.  They're also an essential component of our skill set.  This class taught by Peggy O'Neal and Bernie Graham is your chance to learn and practice the following key skills:
  • Risk assessment
  • Assisted rescues
  • Towing
  • Complex rescues and scenarios
You will get wet!


  • Completion of basic kayaking course or equivalent.
  • Solid wet exit and previous T-rescue practice.


  • Properly sized and outfitted kayak with front and rear flotation, deck lines and bow/stern toggle lines.
  • Paddle, PFD, spray skirt.
  • Pump, paddle float
  • Tow line if you have one.  If you don't have one, wait until after the class to get one.  We have extras, and will talk about what makes a good tow line.
  • Helmet recommended.
