Rafting is a tourism activity that blends with the natural environment, is a kind of exciting and thrilling project, and is a challenge of physical strength and courage. While seeking excitement and enjoying happiness, it is necessary to understand the situation and safety information about rafting and master some skills. The so-called drift, everything is inseparable from the water, Beijing North a drift here for your safety tips, :
Must wear long clothes and trousers, especially teammates must not "naked drift", after N hours of drifting, the skin after the water is direct sunlight, will inevitably be seriously sunburned, and the water surface reflection is also easy to cause skin damage. Try to wear simple, quick-drying fabrics, but not too thin or too light colors, or it will be embarrassing in the water. You can use the power of sunlight and wind in the gentle area of small waves to restore dry clothes as soon as possible and make your skin suffer less. Bad weather water cold, good weather water sun, pay attention to cold sun protection, too expensive clothing shoes and hats are best not to be used for rafting.
Sunscreen (wide-brimmed hat, outdoor bandana, sunscreen, sunglasses, glasses cord, etc.) Wide-brimmed hat can block the sunlight from the top of the head to avoid tanning and sunburn. Sunglasses, needless to say, when the sun is strong, the role of sunglasses is very big. Glasses rope to prevent eyes from slipping and losing when fighting or capsizing. Sunscreen, very few sunscreen can really waterproof, the process of drifting will inevitably be wet, so the role of sunscreen seems small, the most solution to the problem is to expose the skin as little as possible. Variable turban, can block the face, prevent sunburn, in addition to the water fight encountered "strong enemies", with a turban will not be choked by water.
Inflatable chair cushion can be replaced by inflatable pillow, in the process of drifting ship will inevitably water, the river is very cool, long time sitting in cold water will be very uncomfortable. And the bottom of the boat is very thin, scraping the stone will make your PP feel painful.
Beach shoes to participate in rafting do not wear leather shoes, flat slippers and sneakers, sneakers soaked in water is not good dry, feet will be soaked swelling. Because there will inevitably be water in the boat during the rafting process, if bare feet are easy to scratch when getting off the boat or capsizing, beach shoes and sandals are the best, must choose.
Waterproof bag rafting on the raft only with drinking water, do not bring valuables (such as camera electronic products, jewelry, documents, etc.) and cash and shoes on board, if the boat capsized or other accidents occur, rafting and insurance will not compensate tourists lost cash and items; Valuable but afraid of water things do not take, it is recommended to deposit. If you feel that the opportunity is rare, you must take a camera, then it is best to prepare a better sealing plastic bag and waterproof bag, which can be used to save, cameras, lighters, cigarettes and other wet items, it is recommended to put the items into a sealed plastic bag and then into a waterproof bag. Because the moisture on the river is heavier, and the river is cold and the sun is hot, the waterproof bag will return to the moisture. It is best to bring a not high value of the camera, wrapped in a plastic bag in advance, opened at the flat beach, wrapped when crossing the dangerous beach, and be prepared to throw into the water; If you wear glasses, don't forget to tie them with a rubber band. The waterproof bag must be tied on the ship or body with a rope or quick hanging to avoid unnecessary losses caused by accidents and other circumstances.
Prepare 1-2 sets of dry clothes drifting will be wet and permeable, will inevitably "wet body", if there is no spare clothes after the shore, put on dry clothes will be very uncomfortable. It is best to bring a clean set of clothes to change when disembarking.
Choose ready-to-eat foods that are easy to carry, such as water, chocolate, etc. Can be taken on board, drifting more physical consumption, in the feeling of fatigue when the appropriate supplement energy.
Water washing tools can be used water bottles, water scooping and other any tools, in the boat more water into the water is better to scoop, and when the water is less mineral water bottles are more convenient.
Gloves in the process of drifting is the need to row, in order to prevent our "delicate hands" out of the bubble, it is recommended that everyone of us should wear a pair of thin gloves, but also to avoid the back of the hand tan (for girls). Not if you don't need to row.
Be sure to wear your life jacket before going into the water, and tie your jacket and belt tightly, because once the boat capsizes, this clothing is absolutely life-saving.
When choosing a ship, be sure to pay attention to whether the ship's aeration is sufficient. A boat with insufficient capacity rowing is particularly tired, and the elasticity is poor, and it is easier to turn over after some sections than a boat with sufficient capacity. After choosing a boat, don't rush off. Leave after a period of calm and watch for slow air leakage. In the process of drifting also pay attention to whether the hull is scratched by the stone. If you find or have any doubts about the status of the boat, immediately report to the leader or guard, and then approach the shore where you can stay.
In the process of drifting, the body of the boat as far as possible to keep the direction of the current, especially in the place of the wave flow, but also to adjust the direction of the body at any time, not easy to run aground and capsize. When the drifting boat passes through the dangerous beach, it should follow the command of the staff, do not move casually, and grasp the handrail belt inside the boat body to tighten the feet, and the body should tilt to the center of the hull; When drifting through rapids, you should keep your balance with the boat. If you sit in the back, the body should lean back slightly, and the two people ensure that the boat is balanced and parallel to the river. Rafting has a splashing river section, please do not play in the drop and speed of the river section, splashing.
Kayak is card do not worry to stand up, should steady the boat body, find a good foothold and stand up again, to ensure that the witness is not washed away under the boat. Get out of the boat if you stray into another channel and get stuck or stranded.
Capsized boat drifting in the water is normal, not surprising, basically belong to the reasons for improper operation, after falling into the water do not panic, as long as the life jacket is worn tight will not be dangerous to life. Please wear life jackets, do not get off the ship to swim, do not move away from the hull alone. Even swimming should be in accordance with the advice of the boatman in the calm water, not far away from the hull of the independent action; If the boat capsizes, you do not need to panic, to calm, because you wear a life jacket. Do not do dangerous actions when drifting: in general, the drifting river is relatively safe, as long as you do not take the initiative to get off the boat, do not play with each other, do not take the initiative to catch the floating objects in the water and the grass and trees on the shore, the rafting raft will not turn over. Once the boat capsizes, it's okay, just hold your breath and be careful not to choke on water, because you're wearing a life jacket. After falling into the water, your body will have a sinking process. Don't be nervous as long as you hold your breath, the buoyancy of the water and the life jacket will soon lift you out of the water. If you fall into the water at the rapids, do not kick and struggle, it is easy to be hurt by the stones at the bottom of the river, as long as you maintain your body balance and go down. If you come across a rock above the water, you can grab it and wait for rescue. If not, there will soon be guards and teammates to help.
Generally a man and a woman in a boat rowing is a physical job, it should be rowed by the male team, but if the time and distance is very long, the gentle area should be replaced by the female team. The physical consumption of both people will not be too large, but also can fully enjoy the fun of drifting.
The two members of the boat should take care of each other and build confidence when the drifting boat passes through the dangerous beach, follow the command of the boatman, do not move randomly, should grasp the safety rope, tighten the feet, and tilt the body toward the center of the hull; When in distress, we should help each other, and when we fight water, we should cooperate with each other.
All team members must take the overall situation into account and follow the instructions of the team leader and guard. Pay attention to the arrows and signs along the way as you drift, which can help you find the main waterway and alert the drop zone early.
Water war to the heat also do not forget the time, can not affect the speed of the whole team drifting, so it is recommended that we play guerrilla war, after running!!!
Parents should know: too young children do not float, can not swim. The river in the mountains is complicated, there are rapids and dangerous beaches everywhere, and it is dangerous for ignorant children to move around on the boat.
Tourists with high blood pressure, heart disease, pregnant women, drunkenness, children under 14 years of age and the elderly who are not suitable for rafting should decline to participate in rafting.
Please do not bring sharp objects with sharp points and blades on board to ensure the safety of tourists and the hull; Please do not use your hands and feet to support the stone in order to avoid injury.
During the period when the river flow is too large, no unit or individual is allowed to drift to ensure the safety of tourists and equipment.
Have a bowl of ginger soup after you get off the ship in case you catch a cold.
