Re: Ocean kayak rescue

A kayaker does the same thing any cavalryman does. Dismount from time to time. Getting in and out of a kayak while it is on the water shouldn't be any problem.

Discharging from the kayak being illegal of course until you're three miles offshore? (G)

Re: Ocean kayak rescue

There's several guys attempting this right now, I think its called the Great Pac Race.( this guy is not in the event ) They expect it will take 1 - 3 months to complete.

Back in the mid 80's a guy from San Diego did Monterey - Maui in 62 days.

Hardcore.

I wonder if the kayaking forums argue about what constitutes a "blue water kayak." Makes us all seem like pansies....
