  • Active club members, including kayaking professional and lifetime. Provisional acceptance, pending approval by the trip organizer if this is a paddle

This trip is limited to members with a wet exit certification (except for level 1 trips when the paddler is not using a spray skirt....if the paddler is wearing a spray skirt on a level 1 paddle, the Wet Exit Certification is REQUIRED).  To successfully register you will need to sign into your OOPS member account, and your account will need to be a member of the "Wet Exit Certified" group if you intend to wear a spray skirt.  Your acceptance is conditional on approval by the Organizer, who may contact you with questions about your skills and equipment.  If the measured water temperature is different enough from that listed below to warrant a change in required immersion protection, the Organizer will contact all participants and the Trips Board member with the update at least a day before the trip.

Activity Title: Incident Management Class
Date of Activity: 6/24/2022
Narrative: So, you don’t want to say oops — unless you’re talking about an awesome kayak club. In this incident management class we’ll think about, discuss, and practice how to avoid problems and, in the event something does go wrong, learn, think about, and practice how to deal with problems. Part of this class will be held on shore and part will be held on the water. For the on the land portion, please bring a chair and notebook and pen. If you have them please bring tow belt, helmet, and floatation bags for the on the water portion of the clinic. If your kayak does not have watertight bulkheads and you have one, bring a sea sock.

Bring a snack that you can eat on the water.

I hope to give participants some homework the evening before the class.

Please try to carpool from the campground to the put in.
