Level 3 training weekend (Paddy's weekend)

Postby Staples » Thu Mar 07, 2019 1:55 pm

EDITED
Due to the tree being down in Sluice and other factors, I'm going to change up the trip a bit.

Second EDIT is due to driver availability

Hi everyone,

Looking to run a training day on the 17th.(Sunday of Paddy's weekend)

Trip aim:
River trip to the Boluisce on Sunday. For the top half (down to below S-bend) we will be focusing on the skills that you will need for your level 3 and beyond. Hazard identification, scouting, eddying in and out, letting the water do most of the work, various strokes etc.

From below S-bend, down to Pol Gorm, instructors will take a step back and allow participants to lead the way through rapids, scout and set safety where ye deem applicable etc. We will still be there to bounce ideas off of, but the main idea is to allow an opportunity to develop your river leading skills.

Logistics:
- Sunday, meet at the shed at 9am
- Load up and head to lake put-in
- Take it slow through top section covering level 3 syllabus and applying relevant scenarios
- Opportunity to lead for second half of river
- Head home

PS:
- Ideally you will have a roll on WW. Not bombproof, but also not mythical
- Wear lots of warm gear, this will be a long day on the water, hence the early(ish) start
- Bring a warm drink for the takeout

I have to go home this weekend but I could meet ye in Lucan for a day of paddling?
If someone could bring my boat over on their roof that would be great.
I'll leave it packed with all my gear on my rack

I would love to go on this provided it sticks to Saturday. Ideally I would be back in town before 5?
If space is limited I’ll hold off for someone going for their level 3
