Now we know:
According to a facebook report relayed from the police, the young man who drowned while kayaking had on a pfd but
no immersion clothing
no real history of taking lessons
no float plan

He was no expert. He was unprepared. A senseless death that will probably make impressions on the public who know little of our sport.

Paddle safe,

Maybe each kayak sold, both by companies and private re-sellers, should be accompanied by a basic handbook of safety.

Many kayaks already have safety labels attached inside the cockpits warning people of the risks and recommending that they get instruction. The owners manuals are also little more than safety public service announcements. Sadly, most people don't bother to read or heed any of it.
