I'm going to say this as nicely as possible. Kathy, please learn to swim!!! If you can learn to paddle a boat..you can learn to swim. There is no such thing as an avid paddler that hasn't tipped over at least once. Even if someone is there, and even if you have a pfd, when you tip you're in danger and plenty of people drown even with company around and while wearing a pfd every year. Please dont be one of them. All public pools and most gyms with a pool offer swimming lessons. Take the time to learn to swim, you'll be glad you did...and will probably feel empowered doing so. Put away your kayak until you can swim, none of us want to read about you drowning on here.
