For those of you in Alaska – we are working on putting together a three day whitewater rescue certification course that focuses on packrafting. I have done two of these sort of courses now and wish that everyone I packraft with had done one, too.
They are great confidence and skill set builders. You’ll feel like a real boater after learning how to get in, get out, and get around without your boat.
We are looking at a May date, likely in the Anchorage area and probably in the $250/person range. No more than 12 people.
Again, this is WELL worth it. Learn and PRACTISE how to do the “packraft roll”, paddle with two paddles, chase down empty boats, swim in white water, right a flipped and loaded boat, paddle without a paddle, rescue yourself, rescue your partners, and more. Besides, it’s fun as well as life-saving educational.
