Raft Guide Training 2009

Story posted May 07, 2009

The newest BOC raft guides completed their spring training with an epic journey to the Pemigewasset River.  Led by Marie Sears '09 and Mike Woodruff '87 the trainees navigated a narrow river filled with boulders, ledge drops, and unforgiving holes. 

The group of students began their training in March and have spent the last two months learning the art of raft guiding with classroom lectures, pool sessions, and beginner river trips.  Look for them on the river next fall safely guiding BOC members through the whitewater rapids of Maine rivers.
