Russia is offering an International Youth Rafting Workshop in the form of a rafting camp up in the beautiful Altai Region.
This is a great opportunity for paddlers and coaches to get together, share their knowledge, learn new techniques and skills, plus take their country’s rafting to a whole new level …. while having a whole lot of fun as well!
The workshop is the brain child of Alexey Shirokov, the very successful coach of the WRC and ERC medal winning Russian U-19 Youth team. He has been doing these camps for his own paddlers and would like to spread the opportunity to the rest of the international world.
Ages: The camp is aimed at teenagers from 13 to 18 years of age.
Dates : July, 2- July 15, 2015
Entry fee: USD 100 per person for international teams. That covers: transfer to and from one of International airports (Barnaul or Novosibirsk), full board in the days of the Event, camping, sport and recreational programs, raft rent. That is REALLY good value!
Other activities include: horseback riding in the Altay Mountains and a friendship float on the Chuya and Katun rivers. Those alone sound like a good reason to go!
This workshop has the full support of the IRF as well as the Russian Rafting Federation. The future of rafting lies with our Youth – this is an amazing opportunity to take it to a new level.
Wrapping up this excellent series, swiftwater rescue expert Jim Coffey of R3- Rescue for River Runners, shows how the skills covered in the previous videos can be put to use on a typical day on the river with a mixed group of kayakers. One of the less skilled paddlers has to swim, and both he and his boat need to be rescued.
