Some folks are so renowned that you need only mention their first name. We’re fortunate to have such a woman in our local paddling community.
When Jen Kleck generously offered SDKC two free sessions on kayak safety, 19 paddlers showed up at the Aqua Adventures shop for the 2 hour theory session. There were an equal number of seasoned paddlers and newer paddlers excited to learn everything they could about personal and group safety.
The 2 hours flew by as the interactive group sorted out:
- Identifying the risk
- Plan to avoid the risk
- Your plan if avoidance fails
- Who to inform
- Judging the acceptability of the risk – the probability and consequences of encountering the risk
Anyone that missed this opportunity might want to get in on the course when it’s offered again.
