Intermediate Whitewater Clinic

Start Time: 
Saturday, July 24, 2010 - 8:00am - Sunday, July 25, 2010 - 5:00pm

The Intermediate Whitewater Clinic will prepare you for class IV river running, and entry-level creeking, on the beautiful rivers in Colorado.

The weekend will begin with a 3hr Intro to Swiftwater Rescue, teaching you how to throw and receive a throw rope, how to set safety for fellow boaters, as well as other simple, everyday kayak rescues.  Students will spend the remainder of the weekend scouting and setting safety for the others in class. After lunch, we'll chose one of several class III-IV sections of the Arkansas River, including Brown's Canyon, Parkdale, Royal Gorge, Fractions or Rincon Bridge to work on catching micro eddies, class IV river-running strategies, surfing and leading. 

The goal of this course is to help each student graduate from "follower" to "leader" as quickly as possible.

The 2-day Whitewater Weekend clinic and a reliable combat roll are required pre-requisites for this intense 2-day clinic.

Thanks for the info and the good class.  Even though I've owned recreational kayaks for many years, I learned far more than I ever knew before.

I am impressed with organization and professionalism of Kelly's operation.  The teaching methods are good and are reassuring to the extent they convey that the ability to kayak is within the reach for just about anybody (including not-so-young people like me!)
