Rescue Clinic

SNCKC SKILLS TRAINING AND RESCUE CLINIC

Thursday, August 24 (Members only)

Please mark your calendars for our annual skills training and rescue clinic at Rollins Lake on Thursday, August 24. This is always a fun event while we learn and practice our paddling skills together.

There will be no regular meeting at Seaman’s Lodge in August.

At 4:30pm - Chris Crain, SNCKC member, will conduct an informal stroke clinic, focusing on the forward stroke and perhaps demonstrating some maneuvering strokes helpful in assisted rescues, or bracing strokes to avoid capsize.

At 5:30pm - Thomas Schuebel, an international kayak instructor, will teach a self- and assisted-rescue clinic, both on and in the water.

IMPORTANT – WET EXIT DEMONSTRATION FOR NEWER MEMBERS: This is the time and place for newer members to demonstrate a wet exit with a spray skirt. This demonstration is required for our newer members who wish to paddle the Lake Tahoe/Sand Harbor trip on September 23 and for ocean paddling at Ft. Bragg in October.

Don’t forget to bring dry clothing!

We will be passing by Uncle Sonny's on our way out, and we may just decide to stop in.
