The concept of ensuring the safety of both children and adults on the water includes not only the rescue of drowning people, training in swimming, navigation, prevention and preventive work with children, adults, but also ensuring safety on coastlines and beaches, organizing participation in the development of water sports, works on the arrangement of coastlines and beaches.

Unfortunately, there are frequent cases of injury to people who ride jet skis, motor boats, boats, rowing boats, kayaks, inflatable boats and catamarans, sailing ships, houseboats (houseboats and summer cottages).

We must know that the use of boats and yachts in places of mass bathing of citizens is unacceptable!

Hello friends and readers of my blog! Rafting in English or rafting in Russian is a vivid and memorable adventure. If you have never experienced the power of a mountain river, my advice will help you, if you are already an experienced rafter - you can refresh your knowledge. In this article I tell you: how to observe safety when rafting, from the moment of preparation for the route and ending with emergency situations on the river.

Preparation Requirements

Rafting belongs to extreme sports, and therefore, in some cases, it can be fraught with dangers. Good physical shape for any kind of tourism is a huge plus, and rafting is no exception.

Least of all physical fitness requirements if you decide to go kayaking on a calm flat river. Then you can row as best you can, alternating with other team members. However, if we are talking about long hikes, mountain rivers or difficult routes with winding rivers, then preparation is indispensable. Only the well-coordinated work of the entire rafting team will make it possible to successfully pass all the difficulties of the track.

What to choose for training when preparing for a trip on the river? You need to understand that endurance is the main thing for rafting, or rather strength endurance, because you need to row a lot. If you work out in the gym, choose exercises to train the muscles of the back and arms, the press is also important. As I said, the emphasis is on endurance, since we do not swing our arms with dumbbells, but choose a simulator where you can perform the same actions for a long time, for example, the most obvious one is a rowing simulator.

Running and swimming are also good. It is important to do a little more than you can during each workout. This will help increase your stamina. It is useful to play team games: basketball, volleyball and other similar games.

Beginners sometimes need psychological preparation, especially before long hikes. The easiest way to get rid of fears is to get comprehensive information on issues of interest. The more you understand how the route is built, how the rafting facility is arranged, what you need to know from the safety rules, what the danger of certain areas is and how you will overcome them, the better prepared you will be for the hike.

If you decide to raft using the tour, then the organizers are usually responsible for preparing the boat, they also issue the main equipment - life jackets and helmets. If the group is independent, then preparation should begin with the revision of the kayak. It is necessary to make sure that all its parts are intact. The backpack should always have a repair kit in case of puncture or breakage.

When choosing clothes, collecting a backpack, the main value is their waterproofness. When packing things, food, first aid kit, matches, make sure that everything is sealed.

Basic list of things that you will need: life jacket, safety helmet, raincoat/windbreaker, hat, thermal underwear, waterproof boots, wetsuit, gloves, socks, cotton T-shirts, trousers/shorts (preferably made of synthetics , which protect from the wind and dry well), sweatshirt. Also, do not forget about changeable clothes.


The popularity of rafting or rafting is the opportunity to test oneself for endurance, for survival, for teamwork. Wildlife can present many extreme situations, but that's why we love hiking. The main thing is that unpleasant stories do not happen due to carelessness or non-observance of simple safety rules during water trips.
