***Basic Kayak Safety Rules That All Boaters Should Follow***
As with all recreational activities, there is always the possibility of injury or death. Always use common sense and follow safety rules at all times.
Be aware of weather conditions and water temperature. Prepare for changes in weather and the possibility of a capsize.
Beware of off-shore winds that make it difficult to return to shore.
Always follow the boating rules of the area you're in.
Brush up on self-rescue first in calm, warm, shallow water, and again in more extreme conditions.
Most importantly, WEAR YOUR PERSONAL FLOATATION DEVICE. Coast Guard regulations require that all kayaks have a lifejacket on board. Wearing your lifejacket will help keep your head above water and add insulation to your body, keeping you warmer in cold water. There are great PFDs designed specifically for paddlers. Buy one that fits well, and always wear it while you paddle.
Stay hydrated. Always bring plenty of water and food.
HARES: When paddling in a new area, check with the locals regarding currents, shoreline conditions and weather patterns. Plan an "escape" route - an alternative place to get off the water should environmental conditions dictate it.
It is important to check conditions such as weather and tides before going out in your kayak. Whether you are going on a multi-day excursion or just paddling for an afternoon, being aware of current conditions can help you plan a more safe and efficient trip. An excellent way to monitor sea conditions is to use the National Marine Forecast located at www.weather.gov/om/marine/home.htm
