Loose knit paddling groups face safety issues and
could face litigious backlash when it all goes wrong.
Some highly certified folks stay away from casual new paddlers,
for fear of getting sued in an unfortunate event.
People need to have some "personal responsibility"
for their skillset and take classes, learn, evolve.
Does one say no to the person who shows up in the
"wrong" boat, "wrong" clothing, etc., etc. or
do they tag along anyways for a group paddle ?
