Free Safety Equipment

May 12, 2011 by mike swope

Given out at the Free REI Clinic, yes KayakPower, is thinking of you, when we do the clinics at REI

IMAG0037

Nettie give the 411 on PFD’s, PDQ to the VIP’s

we give you a whistle. Why a whistle, well the United

States Coast Guard, and the State of Texas requires a

signaling device on all human powered watercraft,

Sound Producing Devices
  • Any vessel less than 12 meters in length (39.4 ft.) is required to carry a whistle or horn, or some other means to make an efficient sound to signal intentions and position in periods of reduced visibility.

and currently it can be an expensive lesson to be learned at

the hands of a marine safety officer in the form of a ticket,

so that’s why!

And yes we talked about hulls, and paddle and pfd’s too,

along with how to transport and store you kayak, but

mostly we talk about what fun it is to be the Capitan of

your our craft and enjoy paddling for paddling.

 

Of course we might also mention, the new

Beaver Pond Paddling Trail at LLELA open this weekend

IMAG0027

or the REI Paddle Fest and the Wind Festival

at Trammell Crow Park off the Trinity near Downtown

where we’ll also be demoing yaks from 12-4 on Saturday
