Paddling Tip of the Week
A float plan is an essential part of all paddling trips, even routes you have paddled several times before. Any paddle has the potential to develop into a situation where you might not return as expected. If you end up being overdue to the point of concern, will anyone know where you are? A simple text or call to someone you trust saying who you are paddling with, where you are paddling and when you plan on being back is all it takes. The weekly paddling tip is provided by the Ocean Tribe Paddling Club, which is affiliated with the Sanibel Sea School. For more information, visit oceantribepaddlers.org.
