Liffey descent rescue
« on: September 05, 2017, 15:18:41 »
I've been contacted to get paddlers for Wrens nest for rescue. Rescue is a great way to tighten up those skills for the coming year. We will be mostly boat based and pushing boats to river left. Last year we needed an extra 3 or four boats as Andrew Lynham would tell you.

So if you want to get your boat barge on join me on Wrens

Let's be fair, I'm pretty shit in terms of rescue, but I have no problem with helping out at Annaliffey instead - we did it last weekend for the Lower Liffey and it was grand! If we got a crew together to do Annaliffey, do you think they would have some more competent/confident rescue to give you for Wren's?

Wrens is easier than Annaliffey everything ends up on river left

Annaliffey was easier than Wren's because no-one fell out  ;D

Can't recommend doing this enough. its a great way to practice rescues!

As Kieran said you'll mainly be barging boats from one side of the river to the other, along with free food & a t-shirt at the end :)
