Team Kayak Safety Relay Race @ The Golden Games

Hey river enthusiasts,
The Best Paddling Event in the Rockies" has an event totally based on safety and teamwork on the river. Basically, we have teams of 3-5 people and they'll start by paddling without a skirt through a rapid and intentionally swim. His teammates will use throw ropes and other rescue gear to get the paddler out of the water ASAP and also chase down their gear. Then they'll have to pass the paddle to other teammates, gather their gear and setup a Z-Drag and getting a loaded kayak out of the water. It's a super fun way to gain some safety skills and win prizes! The "Team Safety Relay" is on Sunday May 20 4-5pm.
