Sea Kayaking Wet Exits & Recovery Course

Sep 11, 2016 @ 1:30 pm - 6:00 pm

$80

Successful graduates of this class meet eligibility requirements for renting our sea kayaks. If you have experience sea kayaking but haven’t had any training in performing a wet-exit or re-entry, this is the class for you. Even if you’ve never been dumped in the water, practicing these skills before they are needed is a smart choice.

What is a “Wet-Exit” anyways?
A wet-exit is the process of exiting a sea-kayak after it has capsized. The photo to the right shows a fellow who has just succesfully exited his kayak after capsizing. He is holding on to the boat to prevent it from being swept away from him before working on his self-recovery.
