Candidates should have rolled their kayak at least once prior to attending this Self Rescue for Sea Kayakers course.
For this ‘Self Rescue for Sea Kayakers’ course the day will be spent in our dedicated rolling pool. We initially explore the range of self-rescue options open to us and their pros and cons. We will then work through the various options ‘Cow Boy’, ‘Paddle Float’ and re-entry and roll.
As time allows we will also explore options for getting an injured or exhausted paddler back in their boats using the ‘stirrup’ etc.
Have you missed your roll and felt vulnerable? Would the preferred option have been to be able to climb back in, use a paddle float or re-entry and roll?
This Self Rescue for Sea Kayakers course is not necessarily aimed at those who can roll a sea kayak but for those who we can introduce to a number of further options.
Students will be able to avail of all kit and equipment from our extensive stores. Participants will be required to bring thermal top, towel/toiletries, swimwear, etc.
The Self Rescue for Sea Kayakers course fee includes kit and equipment, in-course transport, instruction from one of our qualified instructors, packed lunch, tea/coffee and a famous chocolate brownie or flapjack.
Our catering is first class, noted both for the quality and quantity of the food that we provide. Your course is catered, so you will be provided with a packed lunch for the day. You may also wish to bring your own personal snack food for use during the course. You can fill a flask with tea or coffee at the Centre if required.
Your course is a one day course, so accommodation is not provided. However, we do have changing rooms, showers and lockers available for your use.
We can offer you a nights’ accommodation and breakfast either at the beginning or end of a course for an extra £26.50 per person. This is a great way to further enhance your time at Tollymore and savour the beautiful majestic setting that the Centre has to offer.
