SwiftWater Rescue / 2 Point Anchor: Victim Pick-Off River Left

Written By: Lance Piatt

A dramatization where a victim or patient must be transported to the opposite side of the river. The team uses a 2 point anchor system (meaning two separate anchored ropes to the boat) and allows the river to “ferry” the boat to the other side and back again.


A ResqMax line gunwas used to get the 2nd mainline to the opposite side of the river (river left).

A 1:1 pulley system with a progress capture (extension from the anchor and change of direction pulley) was used on both sides of the river to maintain proper and controlled progress of the boat and rescuer.
