FREE Cold Water Safety Workshop

 

When: Saturday, March 8, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Where: Rollingview Community Building, Falls Lake State Recreation Area
             4201 Baptist Rd, Durham
Who: Guest Speaker Moulton Avery, founder/director of the National Center for Cold Water Safety
 

Cold water kills more flatwater paddlers than any other single hazard. During winter in the Carolinas we can be lured by a warm, sunny day onto water with temperatures in the 40s and 50s. If we are improperly dressed (jeans, sweatshirts), we can die if we capsize and are unable to exit the water quickly -- or if we gasp and inhale water. The same hazard exists in summer for paddlers where water is cold year round -- like Maine and the Pacific NW. Come to the free workshop to learn how cold water acts on the human body and how to reduce the risk of deadly hypothermia and cold water shock. The indoor portion of the workshop is free. There is an optional outdoor portion for those who want to swim test their wetsuits and drysuits in the lake. There will be a $5 charge for the sponsor's insurance to cover swim testers (but no charge for ACA members/swim testers who bring their ACA number).

This workshop is sponsored by the Carolina Kayak Club for the benefit of all local paddlers; you don't need to be a club member to attend. Everyone is welcome. For more info please see www.coldwatersafety.org.  If you are a CKC member, please see the club calendar.
Be there!
