Foundation Safety and Rescue Course, April 2018 @ Loch Lomond
Apr 15 @ 9:00 am – 6:00 pm

Contact Sandy Johnston :

The British Canoeing Foundation Safety & Rescue Training course is the first safety course that most
paddlers encounter as it teaches the safety skills that the other courses then build on and develop.
You will be shown simple and effective techniques which will allow you to deal with the common
problems that you can be confronted with on flat water whether you paddle a kayak, a canoe or a
sea kayak. By the end of the course you will be a safer paddler as you will have the skill to be able to
rescue others in a wide variety of situations and you will be able to empty a variety of boats in a safe
and easy way.
Topics covered on this course include:

ο‚· Safety and rescue protocols.
ο‚· Equipment – what to carry.
ο‚· Simple reaching rescues.
ο‚· Simple throwing rescues.
ο‚· Swimmer tows and rescues.
ο‚· Tows and towlines.
ο‚· Safe boat emptying for kayaks, canoes and sea kayaks.
ο‚· Returning swimmers to boats.
ο‚· Dealing with unconscious kayakers.
ο‚· What happens if we all go in.
This is a β€˜get wet’ course however on most courses, this will be saved until the afternoon so don’t
worry about being in and out of the water all day. The coach will probably spend more time in the
water than you and will demonstrate all the rescues both as rescuer and also as the pretend
casualty.
