  "large" is relative
  Posted by: paddlemore on Jul-10-11 11:52 PM (EST)
 

There are very large numbers of paddlers (who are a small percentage of the population) in a relatively small and low population density area. The sum total is a 'relatively' low number of people, hence the relatively low number of people struck by lightning.

Companies don't cancel trips, and private boaters might not stay home, if there is a possibility of a thunderstorm. HOWEVER, when there IS a thunderstorm people seek shelter. Most get off of the water when a thunderstorm is happening in close proximity.
