Members Only  Creeking Clinic - Saturday  August 3

 

**If you are not a member and would like to join, please visit the www.atlantawhitewater.com/join **

 

This clinic is for beginners and intermediate boaters.  Advanced boaters are welcome as well as there is always something to learn and different lines to take. Advanced boaters are also welcome to help run rescue.  The class will be held on the Ocoee River HOWEVER if there happens to be water on the Tellico or the Cascades of Nantahala then we will have the clinic there. 

You need a solid roll to take this clinic.   In light of recent events on whitewater a solid roll is a necessary skill in order to keep everyone safe.  I know that most people do not have a 100% roll.  My idea of a solid roll is one that is 90% successful. If you are very new to kayaking then please go to some AWC roll practices and get a more experience before you partake in a creeking clinic of any level.

You need to bring plenty of water or Gatorade, food, a throw rope and any other rescue equipment you have. You will need to have float bags in your kayak as well. 

We will discuss creeking skills and rescue skills for about an hour on land before we depart to the water.  Once on the water we will be learning/practicing boofing, ferrying, scouting, reading flow, group dynamics, rescue skills, swimming, and whatever else comes up. 

The absolute maximum number of people for this clinic is 10. No tag alongs.

We are going to be learning a lot in this clinic so expect to be out on the water all day.  Lets all meet at the Ocoee dam put in at 10am to set shuttle.  After shuttle and pre river talk we will put on river at noon. We will stop at Go Forth for a snack but make sure to bring lunch and we will eat during the talk before we put on.  We will probably take off river around 5 or 6pm. 

Can’t wait to see everyone!  I love teaching this clinic
