Rafting is a mass water activity, generally speaking, rafting is divided into three categories: adventure rafting, natural rafting and manipulation rafting. The first two categories in a sense can also be classified as natural rafting, the difference is that adventure rafting does not emphasize mass participation and focus on the adventure, and therefore more dangerous. The narrow benefit sense of natural rafting and manipulation of rafting, more of a mass water sports entertainment projects, we usually say rafting, that is, this rafting.
Rafting activities have been widely carried out in the international arena, some countries have reached the degree of popularity. In China, due to the improvement of the living environment and quality of life of the masses in recent years, rafting activities have also begun to transform into popular mass sports activities. Ltd. in Jiangyou City, Sichuan Province, seized the business opportunity to take the lead in the whole Sichuan Province to carry out tourism rafting activities, which has attracted wide acclaim from all walks of life and is known as "the first rafting in Sichuan tourism".
Rafting activities are different from other outdoor tourism activities, it has strict organizational discipline and strict security measures to ensure, and it is also more strict and scientific selection of rafting tools, rafting river. For rafters, the necessary rafting knowledge is indispensable, the following is a brief introduction to this knowledge.
The basic knowledge of rafting
1, rafting period for the annual April to October, before leaving in the dress should try to choose simple, easy to dry clothes, but do not too thin or color too light, or in case you fall into the water you will be very embarrassed, in addition to carry a set of clean clothes, in order to get off the boat to change, while carrying a pair of plastic slippers, in order to wear on board; in the weather temperature is not high to participate in rafting, you can bring your own raincoat or in the rafting Buy a raincoat at the departure point; for those with glasses, please find a leather belt to tie your glasses.
2, rafting can not carry cash and valuables on board, if the capsize or other unexpected things happen, rafting companies and insurance companies will not compensate tourists for the lost cash and goods; if you feel the opportunity must bring a camera, it is best to bring a foolish machine of low value, wrapped in plastic bags in advance, open when the beach is flat, over the dangerous beach, and be prepared to throw into the water thought;
3, the first thing on board is to carefully read the drifting instructions, listen to the arrangements of the boatman, wear a good life jacket, find the safety rope; drifting boat through the beach to listen to the command of the boatman, do not move randomly, should clutch the safety rope, tighten the feet, the body to the center of the boat tilt; if you encounter capsize, you do not have to panic at all, to calm, because you wear a life jacket; shall not just get off the boat to swim, even if swimming should be in accordance with the boatman's Views in the calm water swimming, not away from the hull independent action.
4, the drift boat is made of polymer materials, there are three independent air bins, in normal use will not have air leakage problems, because the stream is not deep, even if there is a problem, you can go ashore in time, blow the life jacket on the distress whistle, looking for rescue personnel and replace the drift boat.
5、Safety over dangerous beaches. In the process of drifting, please pay attention to the arrows and signs along the way, which can help you find the main waterway and early warning of the plunge area. Before arriving at the dangerous shoal, you can predict the general direction of the downstream; then greet everyone to collect the oars, take back the feet in the boat and together, grab the rope on the edge of the boat with both hands, lower the body, do not stand up, stabilize the boat's center of gravity to maintain a stable, generally can be safely crossed.
6、Run out of the whirlpool. When the river current is deep, there is often a whirlpool, so you should try to avoid being caught and go around. If caught, to remain calm, let the boat rotate with the migratory flow, and so on to the outer edges of the whirlpool, we can paddle with full force to break out of the predicament.
7、Avoid collision. Keep smooth, avoid collision is the drifting process must adhere to the principle. When there is no way to avoid it, the boat should be controlled at the angle of frontal collision (side collision can easily lead to capsize), and the personnel should hold on to the rope. After the collision, the boat will be parallel to the shore, at this time the occupants of this side should pay attention to the foot to avoid pinching. Sometimes the boat and the boat will be close to each other, in order to avoid collision, both sides should cooperate with each other to the opposite direction paddle or against the open hull.
8、Stranding. Stone dense place, the waterway becomes narrow, the water depth becomes shallow, the current becomes rapid, it is easy to run aground. No need to panic at this time, the oar can be used against the stone, force the boat to leave the stranded place. If this trick does not work, we must send a member into the water, from the side or pull or push to let the boat reenter the current, and pull the boat to see the hand, pay attention to safety.
9、Fall into the water. In case of accidentally falling into the water, do not panic, the buoyancy of the life jacket is enough to float the person on the water, and the boat companion should stretch out the paddle to let the person in the water to climb and grab. If the fallen person is far from the rubber boat, to find a way to shore or stay on the backwater side of the stone (waterfront current strong and easy to be hit by the rubber boat) to wait for rescue.
10, capsize. Capsize mostly in the fast-flowing areas, often because someone fell into the water and caused the rubber boat center of gravity is unstable. After the capsize should remain calm, the first boat hull righting; re-boarding pay attention to the balance of forces on both sides, one side of the personnel climbing on the boat when the other side to be pressed. You should pick up the fallen paddle in time, otherwise you will have to paddle by hand in the slow flow area. A ruptured air chamber is the worst case scenario. To adjust the position of the personnel on the boat, the location of the ruptured gas chamber do not sit again; try to keep the rubber boat stable and wait for rescue.
Second, the choice of drifting river
(A) manipulation drift
Manipulated drift is the process of drifting by the boatman manipulating the drifting boat for effective control, the drifters involved in drifting under the control of the boatman drifting the whole course. Strictly speaking, drifters are only passengers on the drifting boat, and they complete the process of drifting according to the control of the boatman. Manipulated rafting is generally carried out in high mountain valleys with fast, deep water and complicated terrain, and the tourist rafting activities developed by Bailonggong Tourism Co. Manipulated rafting is not only thrilling and exciting, but also safe and reliable, which is a mainstream rafting form preferred by tourists.
(B) Natural rafting
Natural rafting is generally carried out in the river with shallow and gentle water flow. Natural rafting is to let each tourist free to participate in rafting activities, rafting organizers only to provide the necessary rafting boats, rafts, pulp and other equipment, and supervision and protection at various critical points along the way, by the tourists themselves rafting the whole process. This form of rafting is smooth and exciting, but for the middle-aged and elderly rafting enthusiasts, it is a good choice.
Third, the choice of rafting equipment
The so-called drifting equipment refers to the floating boats, boats, rafts and other drifting products and life jackets worn on the drifters and other life-saving products.
Pan River drifting activities used in the drift boat is the best safety performance of the rubber boat, drifters sitting in the boat, manipulated by the boatman, a rubber boat, drifters sitting in the boat, manipulated by the boatman, a rubber boat floating in the bottom of the waves and valleys, the risk of no inquiry, its fun, drifters' life safety by the double protection of equipment and artificial.
