Late August Packraft Rescue Training

Post by RomanDial » Thu Jun 18, 2009 6:52 pm

Scott Solle is talking about another packrafting-focused, swiftwater rescue training course in late August.

I'd like all my paddling partners to take one, and, at my middle age, need a refresher each year, too.

Stay tuned.

Does Scott offer these courses in the lower 48 or up North?

But this particular one's in AK.

Scott does great courses. We definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to take their river safety & proficiency to a new level.
