: This link -- http://travelswithpaddles.blogspot.com/ -- is to a
: very recent Incident Report by a high level BCU coach in the
: Netherlands who went out with other highly skilled paddlers
: "just for some rolling practice." Every one is bound
: to have their own take away from this contrite and detailed
: debrief, but it bears reading by anyone thinking about safety,
: which to me anyway, ultimately translates into being able to
: continue enjoying kayaking for a long long time with present and
: yet-to-be-met fellow kayakers :)
Here is a direct link to Axel Schoevers' incident report (in English)
The participants obviously put a lot of thought into their recommendations.
Their comments on leadership, or lack thereof, appear to conflict with the Common Adventure Models in use by many paddling clubs here in the U.S. Keep in mind this was group of friends/peers going out for some informal rescue training.
