check out the sea rating system.
http://tsunamirangers.com/articles/sea-conditions-kayaking-difficulty-rating-system/
this is a great way to rate a trip on the day and acts as a good check list of conditions and things to consider.
practice those rescues in 'conditions' you are likely to need them. A friendly shore on a windy day is a good place to practice.
the best rescue is a roll. Then your paddle floats make a nice pillow
We did a test of flares last summer in our club. We shot 3 or 4 duds before we had a good one.
