SE QLD - Safety Day # 3 - Sunday 13th October 2013

Postby kayakone » Thu Jun 13, 2013 5:36 pm

I'm planning another Safety Day in mid October.

The last two were of enormous benefit to all attendees. You will learn a lot of valuable info to help keep you safe from injury, and also techniques for re-entries, broken paddle, injured/sick etc ... all sorts of things that could save your butt one day.

Who's in for this one?

It'll be good to meet you Feral. Several KFDU members came last time.

The day (morning) will be held at a gently shelving sandy beach at Scarborough, at the north end of the Redcliffe Peninsula. It is BYO kayak. However, it does not exclude those without a kayak at that stage .... there will be spare kayaks to borrow for the morning's training.

It will be much more than an opportunity to learn valuable safety skills, as some local suppliers will provide a range of kayaks to try out.

There will be lunch and drinks supplied for all attendees, and friends and families (provided I can arrange that again).

The stuff you will learn can be a lifesaver. :grin:

The date is SUNDAY 13th October (regardless of weather on the day). The worse the weather, the more realistic the self rescue scenarios. (Family may want to re-consider under bad weather conditions).

Re family, the beach is good for little kids getting wet. There are extensive bike tracks in both directions. Four kilometres S there is a free public pool at Redcliffe on the foreshore (like a mini South Bank pool).

Fishing: The Scarby reefs are minutes away, and a pre training session fish is a distinct possibility for early starters.


Please bookmark this date now, and please commit on the forum, so qualified instructor numbers and lunch catering can be planned in advance. Only highly qualified sea kayak instructors will run the training (Australian Canoeing qualified). You are assured of professional level instruction dedicated to safety as the highest priority.

Bump!

All welcome, regardless of experience or yak type.

You will take away life and injury saving skills. :D

It is especially good to see new members, and some novices, committing to this training. However, more experienced kayak fishos should look at doing this training too (a few already in). On previous Safety Days some experienced fishos (Nad 97; Lazybugger; DennisT; Indiedog; Action Surf, etc) have attended, and have drawn great benefits from the training.

Previous attendees, in the interest of encouraging others, ......Care to pass comments?

Definately a worth while event.

I attended last years event - froze my nuts off, lost some sunnies - but gained so much more in return.

I highly recommend this Safety day to anyone thinking about it - regardless of experience levels ( those with a lot of experience - this is an opportunity to give back to the community by sharing your knowledge. And those with little experience - its a great way to learn as well as meet new people)

I will be attending this one for sure.

I hope to see a few familiars as well as some new faces... :wink:

Tailor 25cm, Moses Perch 28cm,
Wild Bass 40cm, Travelly 27cm,

There is nothing more relaxing than a day on the water in a Kayak.

Sunday 13th October is getting closer. Anyone else from the forum (or friends) want to learn some valuable safety stuff? Please, let us hear from you.

Please express your interest here soon, to assist with planning for both instructors and the catering (lunch is included)(family members can also be catered for if we know well in advance). Ensure you bookmark the date.

Also, a reminder, that there will be a variety of kayaks available to try out, after the safety training and lunch are over. These will be supplied by a number of SE Qld retailers (three big ones are coming). If you do not have a kayak and would like to attend, you are welcome to use one of the demo kayaks for the safety training.

Some will be unable to make the commitment until much closer to the time, due to work or family. Don't stress! Just see if you can make it ....there is loads of valuable stuff to learn and take with you. At the end of the day you will be much safer on the water than ever before.

If you are one of those, it will be OK to turn up short notice, and there will be several demo kayaks if you're stuck in that regard.

The commercial people coming along are contributing all the gourmet food and drinks (we hope :D ), so those who do know for sure are best to commit and register soon, rather than last minute. This makes the catering a lot easier for the sponsors.

Another factor in the planning is the instructor to attendee ratio. We need commitment, i.e. known numbers of attendees, to plan for this well in advance (highly qualified instructors are not in large numbers, nor instantly available).

The list of attendees is growing fast, but so far only four from KFDU. ??

Doesn't matter if you live in Woop Woop, nor if you fish only freshwater, nor whether you are experienced or novice, there will be many, many useful hints and techniques you will get from this day.

So come along. Put your name down and keep Sunday 13th October free. You'll be glad you did. :glad:
