Hi, I am looking for people keen to help out with my year 13 (7th form) kayaking trip. We need anyone with paddling experience to come down the Rangatikei river, dropping in at Utiku, camping the night at Mangaweka, paddling through to ohingaiti. Anyone who is available that if an incident was to happen that would be a part of the solution rather than the problem would be helpful. The dates for the three classes are 23rd/24th, 26th/27th, 30th/31st of march. We can pay you for your time. Anyone interested, and preferably qualified, please contact me at Cheers.

I would encourage you to look at trained club or professional instructors, who have completed instructional, river safety and river rescue training.

Hi Jason, what grade is the trip? I'm interested if its not flat. I would prefer grade 2-3 since it's learners and would be comfortable looking after people who have no experence on that.
