River Crossing Safety Day


More people come to grief through drowning in the backcountry of New Zealand than in any other way. 

Do you have the necessary skills to know how to, and be comfortable with, safely crossing a river. Have you thought about a river safety course?

The C/W section has arranged 3 Mountain Safety Council instructors to run a river crossing safety day for us and this course is limited to just eighteen participants. 

There will be an evening seminar for two hours on Friday, starting at 6pm, followed by a half-day practical on Saturday starting at 10am (the seminar is compulsory in order to attend the practical course). 

The cost of this course is just $25 and open to current NZAC members only. For a registration form, equipment list and further information, please email Clayton on [email protected]
