Kayakers Rescued

A group of nine  skilled 'Leader' kayakers in the Netherlands talk about what went wrong on their June 13 paddle.  The group departed for a social/training paddle and quickly found themselves in need of a coast gaurd rescue.  They have just recently released an incident report that should be read by ALL kayakers. 

The report is a fascinating description of the events that occurred and their post trip observations of what went wrong as well as recommendations for the future.  It reminded me of a story from George Gronseth's "Sea Kayaker Deep Trouble" book.  A book by itself that all kayakers should take the time to purchase and read.
