USK Course of Action Scenario
May 2006
"Cold Water Capsize"


On a sunny day one of the members of your group of four paddlers capsizes and wet exits into the cold water. They are wearing boots, polypropylene long johns, shorts and a short sleeve cotton shirt. They are having difficulty climbing back into their boat and they keep falling back into the water even though one of the group is stabilizing this paddler's kayak. The paddler in the water is showing visible signs of being too cold due to the water temperature. What is your course of action?
