The 30 second kayak rescue is a very attainable goal for anyone in a boat with bulkheads.  Let us show you how to efficiently get someone back into a dry boat in about 30 seconds, measured from point of contact with the swimmer to them sitting in a dry cockpit.

What’s covered:

The role of the swimmer
gear management
what to do with their boat
where to be before the rescuer arrives
options for re-entering the cockpit quickly and easily

The role of the rescuer
safety considerations
how to approach the swimmer
gear management
emptying the kayak without lifting
effective stabilization techniques

If time allows, we can also look at other assisted rescue options, self rescues or towing.
