Paddle Craft

Increasingly popular paddle craft, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and canoes, are vessels and operators need to know the
fundamentals of safe boating as well as be aware of the potential
risks associated with small boat recreation. By their nature paddle
craft are low profile watercraft and may not be readily seen by
larger boats. Paddlers should generally avoid heavily trafficked
areas of any waterway and if necessary to cross a marked channel, do so at right angles and move as quickly as possible so as
to avoid impeding the passage of larger craft in the channel. As
the likelihood of capsizing or swamping is greater on smaller watercraft, cold water immersion becomes a real danger when water
temperatures drop below 70° F. Therefore everyone is strongly
advised to wear a life jacket and the appropriate clothing designed
to retain body heat. When operating at night you are required to
carry a white light to show to prevent collision. All paddlers must
carry a whistle or other means of making an efficient sound signal
