In the first two hours you will learn terminology, rigging, strapping, proper care, and repair.
Then we will spend two hours in the pool with a raft learning how to climb back in and re-flip it.
This is a great class for kayakers, beginning rafters, or anybody without experience who has been invited on river trip. The class is taught by two instructors with 35 years combined commercial raft guiding experience and is being offered through coloradowhitewarter.org, a non-profit organization that was founded in 1954 with the purpose of encouraging whitewater paddling in CO.
