Cultus Lake

The “Huli” Brings Out the Best in You

Last week after completing our hour long dragon boat training on Cultus Lake, several of us took the opportunity to practice a “huli” recovery.

In order to be allowed to paddle on the canoes with outriggers called the OC1 (1 man) and OC6 (2 man) this winter, we had to pass the “huli” (capsize) drill”.

Teamwork is needed to right the larger canoe so by preparing for a capsizing we learn what to do to avoid hitting the panic button.
