Swiftwater Rescue - doing some winter water?!

Some adventurous souls braved the winter water, to learn Swiftwater Rescue!

Wake Forest University Outdoor Pursuits trip leaders (and a couple of their friends) joined instructors Eli Helbert and Jon Lowrance for a chilly but successful ACA Swiftwater Rescue course 24 & 25 March 2012. As the first SWR course of the year at Landmark Learning, students rose to the challenge of mid-50ºF air temps, 40-50ºF water temps, rain and wind to learn how to safely manage whitewater rescue situations.  Props to the students for staying so positive despite the stiff weather conditions! The Outdoor Pursuits trip leaders weren't the only WFU students on the Tuck that weekend, though:  up in the gorge another group of Outdoor Pursuits leaders were instructing a two-day kayaking course for WFU students. We wish our new ACA Swiftwater Rescue grads the best as they  prepare for a busy season of paddling instruction at WFU! Stop by and see us at Landmark Learning on your next trip to the Tuck!
