Advanced White Water Safety And Rescue
White water safety and rescue for canoeists, kayakers and rafters. A completely revised new edition now in full colour throughout. You can find presentation resources of the photos and illustrations below. The writing of this book started when I tried to put some notes together as course notes for the safety and rescue courses I was running at Plas y Brenin. It soon became clear what a huge topic it is and in sheer frustration I explained to a friend that I would have to write a book to cover it properly. I hope you find it enjoyable and informative. Franco Ferrero divides his work time between managing Pesda Press and freelance coaching.
