Good advice, even if it is from CKC!

ATTENTION CKC Sprint Clubs

The following news story in the link below describes a tip of a dragonboat in Nanaimo harbour on Wednesday evening, March 28th, 2012.

Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt by the accident. Nevertheless, the general public makes little distinction between types of paddling and we must be aware that accidents such as this impact the publics view of all paddling.

This incident is a warning that safety is our most fundamental concern at all times of the year but it is absolutely critical during cold water conditions. We must all take precautions to ensure the safety of our most valuable assets, our PADDLERS! Please read the story, read the CKC Code of Safety itself and finally, assess your own Clubs preparedness for Spring training.

These guys were paddling in the Pacific in April.. absolutely they need to be wearing their life jackets. On the other hand, when Lake Ontario turns into a swamp on a sweltering summer day in Toronto, I'm leaving my life jacket on the floor. I'm a very competent swimmer and feel comfortable doing so (that's not say I haven't seen people who are known non-swimmers doing the same)

Hopefully stupidity by a few doesn't ruin it for all.

Stop posting you moron. It affects you because you paddle for a crew that rents boats from a club. That club has to buy insurance and adhere to an insurance policy that stipulates safety requirements. Enough of these high profile dragon boat flips, and insurance companies will see the value of mandatory lifejackets. The same goes for races, where a mandatory life jacket policy could be instated.

That's a laugh. Guess you don't compete anywhere. Your safety policy doesn't hold water if another boat t-bones you
