Kite surfing endorsement on safety boat certificate

Talking to Andy Hooper Today RYA South RDO
And we got onto Kite surfing
I for one would be interested in attending a one day kite surfing rescue seminar (Practical session and theory) any other Powerboat Instructors or Safety boat certificate holders out there that would be interested. If enough peeps show an interest he may put one on.

So far Possible 7 any more to make it viable not only Instructors even those with current safety boat award may find it interesting and potential to provide safety cover for kitesurfing events.

This is something I'd be interested in doing too, my girlfriend is a kite surfer and having discussed it a bit with her, it sounds quite varied.

Definitely worth doing. When dealing with Kitesurfers kit... if you get it wrong, it goes very very wrong.

I've been the only Brit on the rescue team at the KPWT World Tour in France for the last two years. It's an awesome sport, but the conditions that they compete in are very difficult. They want a minimum of 14 knots of wind to launch this year, and will carry on without a top-limit :-S We were out in Force 8-9 last year, that was fun (not). Thank **** I was only crewing!

The easy thing about that job, is that as they are all sponsored, they don't care about their kit. Cut the lines, stab the kite, do whatever we need to do.

Last year we had... one dislocated shoulder, one torn knee (she's not long recovered), one hyperextended elbow, one concussion.... and that was just on the rescue team!!! We had a fractured tibia from the competitors.

This year we had... suspected spinal, many concussions, broken ankle... and that was just from the spectators! Nothing from the competitors as there was no wind, so no competition!

The RNLI leaflet about packing down a kite is quite good... although how easy that is to do in the water, I'm not sure.

I'd highly recommend it, kitesurfing is a sport like little else on the water... it's about time it got a section in the Safety Boat course - considering it's boom in popularity.

Cheers, WMM

looks to be about 10 then so far
as whiteminiman pointed out when it goes wrong it goes very wrong .
I think it could be an excellent training day for us all if it is going to happen and judging by the interest here it may happen by region so peole don't have to travel so far.

I think it would be a excellent training day and fun as well alway,s fancied ago on one so should be safe enough with 10/20 safety crew around to save me

Latest up date on this project
I have contacted the British Kite Surfing Association Direct to see if they are interested in this type of seminar being run in association with Paul Glatzels School.
The RYA are happy for a course to be run but will not endorse any safety boat certificates as they are not expert in kite surfing and the British Kite Surfing Association already represents the sport.

How ever they are happy for a seminar to be run by the Kitesurfing association in rescue techniques this would be open to RYA Safety Boat Certificate Holders, RLSS UK Clubs and any independant lifeboat organisations .

If Paul Glatzel is happy to host the day then it could still happen there would be a cost to all participants to cover overheads I for one am still interested in attending this type of event as it is related to my Beach Lifeguard training for Inshore Rescue Boats and is a discussion topic in the Safety Boat Syllabus.

Very happy to host and would only feel the need to cover costs (which would be minimal early enough in the year) on this so charge need only be a minimum but also I suspect to get commitments & avoid numerous promises to attend & no attendees.

I'll buzz you later in the week to discuss

Paul

Thanks for that Paul
Maybe advertise it in the RYA Magazine and all the others to generate the numbers.
Can those who have expressed an interest let me know as Paul has kindly offered to host this event it would be a shame for it not to happen.
