Level 3 river safety interest?

Post by 737driver » Fri May 29, 2015 11:03 am

Several of us were talking this week about the need for a level 3 SWR course. Many boaters do not have the time to do a full two day course. Many believe that they don't need a SWR course because they don't boat big water. However, most of the river accidents that occur are on class I and II water. The reason is that typically these boaters don't have the self rescue knowledge that the big water boaters have. Many of you enjoy the beauty and relaxation of class I and II water and do not desire to run bigger stuff. Everyone boats for their own reason and that's why we all got into this sport.
I'm just trying to gauge the interest in a level 3 course. It would just be a 1 day class. You will learn all the self rescue techniques as well as group safety. Also rope throwing, strainer dangers, swimming, wading, etc. We would not get into complicated rope reacues and detailed knot tying. We would however, demonstrate basic boat rescues. Comment below or message me if you would be interested. If there is enough interest then we will make it happen this summer!

Clay, I know of 2 individuals (new ACC members) that are interested in a one day level 3 SWR course.

A one day class would be great. I know three other people who would take it as well.
Thanks for all your help on the Cadron.
