Join other aspiring Raft Rowers and skilled instructors to enjoy two days of development on one of the best rivers in Oregon!f This course will provide a rich experience for individuals interested in learning the skills required to efficiently row a raft on rivers with class I-III rapids. This course includes advanced river reading, safety considerations, and rowing techniques. In addition, the skills required to captain, or guide, an oar raft in class I-III rapids will be covered. Also, what is required to lead a trip and support others on the river. This course is appropriate for properly outfitted rafts rigged to row. Participants should be familiar with navigating their raft in flat water and some basic rowing mechanics. You need your own Personal Protective Equipment for this course: Helmet, PFD, Cold water layering or drysuit. You also need access to a raft or cat raft you can row. (If you don't have a raft currently, please reach out to me and I can offer some suggestions). Camping at Mckenzie Bridge Campground has been reserved and included in the price of the course (Friday and Saturday nights). I'm happy to answer any other questions you may have about the course.
