Water confidence and safety session

Around twenty paddlers entered the pool for our annual pre-season water confidence and safety session at Kendal Leisure Centre pool.

More paddlers participated from the pool side practicing using paddles to help someone out of the water from a jetty fall into shallow water or throw line and rope techniques to aid someone at greater distance and water depth.

We also practiced group support techniques to help fellow paddlers if multiple people are in the water giving reassurance and helping keep fellow paddlers warm.

It is good experience to feel what it is like to be in the water in paddling clothing and buoyancy aid

It’s always a valuable learning session and also good fun. Thanks to all the instructors and participants.

Paddlers stay together for reassurance and conserve energy to keep warm.
