In the August issue of Sea Kayaker, Matt Broze writes about a rescue that happened a few years back. The group of 3 very experienced paddlers on an off-season paddle find themselves in trouble in the rough waters of Queen Charlotte Strait. All members were successfully rescued because they initiated their distress call before it was too late, and had proper signaling equipment.
Matt, along with comments from two of the members, takes us through the planning of the trip, the decisions that were made and a followup of what went wrong.
We'd like to hear your comments on this safety artcle.
