RENTALS

COLD WATER PADDLING The Gasp Reflex occurs when the body is suddenly immersed in cold water - the mouth opens uncontrollably & one can drown from the water ingested. Hypothermia is a condition in which a person's temperature drops below that required for normal metabolism & bodily functions. When the body is exposed to cold, its internal mechanisms may be unable to replenish the heat that is being lost to the person's surroundings. Immersion in cold water (under 60 degrees F) can incapacitate a person & possibly lead to death. It has been said that the average 50-year-old has a 50% chance of survival in 50 degree water after 50 minutes of exposure. Your odds of survival are increased by: wearing a dry suit or wet suit, not wearing any cotton clothing (wet cotton will suck the heat right out of you), staying close to shore, paddling with others who are practiced in rescue, practicing self rescue, wearing a PFD (Personal Flotation Device aka Life Jacket), not paddling in conditions beyond your skills.
