Mike Aronoff: Now we're going to demonstrate a capsize with a T-rescue to get my friend back in the boat and the water out of the boat, actually in a reverse order to that. Boat over, I've got him, hang on your paddle, hang on your boat. Slowly turn it over. Now I have your paddle, put my weight in front of the cockpit, my hand on the thigh brace. Eric, pull yourself up on the boat with your head that way. Now you can get your feet pulled over towards to me, watch your spray skirt.
Okay he's back in the boat but the rescue is not over until he gets his spray skirt on, feet on the food pegs and says he is happy. That was the assisted T rescue. Next we're going to have the paddle float self-rescue and he is going to have to do that on his own.
