S.T.O.P. – Individual Rescue Risk Stop - Am I safe? If necessary move to safe place.Position Kayak correctly pointing into wind, tide or swell. Can I perform the rescue effectively?Do I have the skills, strength and training?Don't get involved if you will have a negative effect! Is the casualty/victim Proactive or Inactive (eg. injured, untrained, incapable)?Remember the Rescue Protocol: Preach, Throw, Reach, Go Perform rescue if safe to do so.Think of the best options ie. quick landing, swim in for instance.It doesn't have to be from within kayak!
