Re: Thoughts in advance of the Gales of November

Any report on that May incident?

: Nick,
: Thanks for summarizing CAM for others following here. It may be the
: only recourse for paddling/adventure clubs here in the U.S.
: unless the club wants to carry costly liability insurance. I am
: well aware that many clubs have already dropped any insurance
: coverage they did have (e.g. NSPN). They simply could not afford
: it. The CNY Kayak Club that I infrequently go out with uses a
: 'weak' version of CAM. As some have indicated CAM may not be the
: safest alternative, but costs eliminate all other options. On a
: club scheduled paddling trip back in May the CNY Kayak Club
: nearly lost a member while following CAM. It was by luck and not
: skill that they didn't. Note that this was a flatwater trip. The
: word "complacency" is quote above. It would have
: certainly applied to the CNY Kayak Club incident.

: I would have thought that liability issues and potentially use of
: CAM would apply in the Netherlands, but Axel's report never
: mentions it.
