03 – Canton Kayak Club – Rescue Training – Thurs. 8/3 – 5:30P-8:30P at Island View

August 3, 2023 @ 17:30


Rescue Training (Fee required)

Canton Kayak Club works with KayakingMadeEZ to provide several rescue training classes each season during the warmest water months of July and August, and this season will be held at our Delta, PA location on Saturday mornings from 9A-12noon and Essex Island View location on a weekday from 5:50P-8:30P.

For most members an additional fee of $60 can be sent by Paypal to cantonkayak@gmail.com OR mailed to the contact address on the CKC website.  These sessions are available to members who have completed the orientation training.

In this class, members learn and practice new skills such as:

  • Wet exit (exiting from an overturned kayak)
  • Partner Rescue
  • Self-Rescue
  • Emptying a kayak when it takes on water.

This course greatly increases a paddler’s confidence on the water, and we highly recommend it.

Sessions are announced as the classes are scheduled during mid-July to mid-August of the season.

Completion of rescue training allows members to apply to become CKC Dock Captains or Paddle Leaders.
