Cedar River - Landsburg
Hobart, WA 98051

Class size limited 12 WRRR members

A DYNAMIC water rescue course specifically written and designed for private boaters, kayakers and non-profit organizations! Basic river skills are a prerequisite! Emphasis is on identifying hazards and on RESCUE itself; both of self and others, using on-river scenarios and using rescue gear that you will typically have. Thinking through rescues is also emphasized. This is the class you want as a boater to stay safe and know what to do if something goes wrong. The two day format makes the course more affordable and accessible. This fast-paced course is taught by paddlers who spend a good portion of their lives on whitewater in a professional capacity. This course should be a prerequisite to anyone boating on any river anywhere! The course addresses the river rescue needs of rafters, cat boaters, kayakers, pack rafters, canoeists, riverboarders and SUP paddlers. Students will receive internationally recognized certification through Rescue 3 International.

Course cost is normally $225. WRRR will subsidize the course so you only pay $125. If more than 12 people sign up there will be a lottery drawing. Members must sign up by April 12th by contacting Rebecca Post at repo461@yahoo.com.
