  Great advice
  Posted by: mgc on Jun-11-13 10:39 AM (EST)
 

about getting out of the boat on the downriver side. You risk getting jammed against the canoe and swamping it if you get out on the upstream side. That is a key safety point to learn and stick with.
Stay with the boat without losing your paddle if you dump.
Locate your partner immediately and make sure you agree on your next move which should be working the boat to shore to dump it out.
Wear you PFD. And use a borrowed cane until you get this all figured out :)
