  5. When in doubt ….. Float. • PFDs (Personal Floatation Device) vests are required any time you are on the water • No member will be allowed to participate in JSSKA outings without wearing one < BACK NEXT >

  6. How dry I am…. • Hatches do not provide adequate protection against incoming water • Some items (clothing, snacks, towels, and valuables) should always be stored in drybags while on the water < BACK NEXT >

  7. How wet I’ll be…… • One certainty in kayaking is… you will get wet • The preferred tool to quickly remove large amounts of water from kayak interior compartments is a bilge pump < BACK NEXT >

  8. Unlike in Real Estate, a key to kayaking is “hydration, hydration, hydration” • Kayaking is very strenuous by nature • The importance of staying hydrated before, during, and after kayaking can not be overemphasized • NOTE: Alcohol is not considered proper hydration < BACK NEXT >

  9. Failure to prepare is preparing to fail. • A Trip Plan should be made showing method & time of contact, area of travel, and overnight accommodations • Leave a copy with someone not participating in trip • Group leader should have proper training, waterproof maps, compass, and two-way VHF marine radio < BACK NEXT >

  10. Come on and cover me • Spray covers provide warmth and protection from wind in cool/cold conditions • Some temporary resistance to water in the event of capsize • Gloves are strongly recommended when paddling in cold weather/water < BACK NEXT >

  11. Up a creek……. • Unforeseen circumstances can separate kayaker from his/her primary paddle • Pack a spare and you’ll never be “without a paddle” < BACK NEXT >

Help, I Need Somebody.. • Always get help when lifting kayak to/from rooftop • Kayak should always be empty when lifting to/from rooftop • Tow rope bag should be stored in an easily accessible area of the cockpit • Paddle Float is an inflatable bladder placed over the paddle blade that aids in buoyancy. Used in self or assisted rescue < BACK NEXT >

  14. Made in the shade • The reflective nature of water makes it crucial that kayakers use protective items like sunglasses, hats, lip balm & sunscreen • Croagies (protective straps) should be worn to keep eyeglasses from falling in water < BACK NEXT >
