balanced boater training
Most sea kayaking is done without support vessels with the primary aim of cruising the coast or exploring coastal features without the need for outside assistance. A group with good rescue skills should aim to be self sufficient and able to deal with unexpected capsizes and wet exits in a range of conditions.
They should also be able to deal with various scenarios including towing and equipment failures by drawing on skill and experience within the group.
