USK Course of Action Scenario
July 2006
"Borrowed Kayak"


You are new to paddling and anxiously waiting for your new kayak to be delivered to your local kayak shop. In the meantime, you want to take advantage of a club training trip so you post an e-mail that you need to borrow a kayak for the trip. You get a reply from Bob saying he will bring an extra kayak for you. During the trip you practice a number of wet exits and recoveries. On the two-mile return to shore, you are falling behind and your kayak seems unstable. One of the other paddlers says it looks like your stern is lower than your bow. What is your course of action?
