River Rescue and Safety Course - GOOBARRAGANDRA May 14 & 15

Fifteen keen paddlers braved the cold of the Goobarragandra River (Tumut). WIth good rain the team quickly transferred from the Barrington to the Goob. Chris James brought his considerable whitewater and swift water rescue expertise to help expand everyones skills in safe river running.  Scout leaders and PaddleNSW RCC Club members snapped up the opportunity.

Pack Raft Course

Why didn't this rain fall in April?? Then we would have had plenty of water to run the Pack Raft Course. It may have been postponed, but a very keen group met at Penrith Whitewater Stadium to review the latest of pack rafts. They were fabulous in negotiating the whitewater course.  If you have doubts, just consider portaging 3 kilograms instead of a 22 kg plastic kayak.
