pencil_flare.jpgThe safety rules for the Cape Point Challenge state that "all competitors shall carry flares or a cell phone in a waterproof pouch..."  SAMSA also mandates that all small craft should carry them.

But where can you buy them and do they really work?

Aquapac Cell Phone Pouch

The Aquapac range of waterproof pouches are ideal for carrying keys, cell phones and whatever else you want to keep safe while you paddle.  They're available from Paddlers.co.za, Coastal Kayaks, Brian's Kayaks and other boating shops in Cape Town.

I had a minor adventure this morning involving wind, waves & flares.

A friend and I went out in Hout Bay for a paddle on our surf skis.  The Northwester was blowing, and usually in such conditions I wouldn’t have gone downwind across the bay – especially as my paddling companion is not very paddling fit at the moment.  However…  we went along the western edge of the bay towards The Sentinel and then (and the wind really didn’t seem all that bad) we cut across the bay downwind.  The waves got bigger and we had some small runs, and then my paddling companion said that he wanted to turn back.

And that’s where the fun started.
