Weekly Reminder – Flipping

If I flip my boat, what should I do?

First do not leave the boat. Currents are fast and deceptive, even for experienced swimmers. Second, do not over-exert yourself, especially in cold water. Exhaustion is a leading cause of more serious unpleasantness.
Third, head for the nearest land where you can upright the boat or head for any boat that is lending assistance.

For more information, review the safety document in the binder in the desk on the island and attend the annual SCRC Safety Clinic.
