HEADLINES

  • Labor Day boating should include more than just summer fun - KyForward online (KY) - August 23: Boaters who plan to hit the water should keep in mind some important considerations before they launch their motor boat, canoe or kayak over the holiday weekend and the upcoming fall fishing season... Zac Campbell, boating education coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, recommends canoeing or kayaking in a group as wakes from motor boats can upset a canoe or kayak. "It is a good idea to bring a square, throwable personal floatation device to help friends in case of trouble," Campbell said. "People in canoes and kayaks on our waters should stay close to shore and out of congested areas."

  • Couple sells everything to canoe on a 1000 day journey - UpNorthLive.com (MI) - August 20: Pierre Pepin and Jennifer Gosselin are in it for the long haul. The two planned for years, sold all their belongings, and set out on a thousand day trip, taking with them only what they can carry in their canoe. They're about 75 days into their trip that started in Quebec City. "We're not trying to establish a record. We're not trying to go fast. We're just trying to meet as many people as possible and have great experiences." Pepin says. They have at least 80 stories of people they've met along the way so far.

  • Kayak rescue drama in UK video - RNLI News (UK) - August 17: The volunteer crew from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution were paged by Aberdeen Coastguard after staff at a nearby visitor attraction had spotted two kayakers in difficulties after a capsize. The lifeboat was launched and was quickly on scene carrying out a search of the area. The crew spotted one casualty in the water who had been separated from his kayak after capsizing. Once he was on board the crew established the location of the second casualty, who was attempting to paddle the two kayaks back to shore. The crew took both casualties on board the lifeboat and with the kayaks in tow, headed back to station whilst assessing the casualties.
