Boater and Water Safety Checklist - What you need to bring and know to ensure safe and enjoyable time on the water.
Given the recent drowning at Wasaga Beach I wanted to write a post about what, in my opinion, you should bring with you on the water to ensure a safe and enjoyable outing. But more than that, playing in Element h20 is about preparedness and the right mindset as well as the right gear. Some things are required by law, but to really be safe and get the most out of it you need more. Below is my guide for more than just what to bring but to being prepared for sailing and waterspouts in general. Enjoy:
Do you ever look at some photos and think, "Mmm, that looks like fun, I wish I was there."
That's the feeling I get when I look at this collection of customer photos. Summer is just around the corner and I cant wait for the warm summer sun, to feel the spray of the water and hear the sound of waves gently lapping at the shore.
Hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
...Sailing season is almost here!!!
CAUTION: You're going to want one after you see this.
Has everything already been figured out? Has sailboat designs reached a pinnacle? Is there nothing left to improve? Is there nothing let to learn?
For as long as I can remember I've always loved designing things. Whether it was building new spaceships and submarines using Lego or sketching solar cars when I should have been taking notes in class. I've always believed things could be done better. No detail and no nuance was too small. The things I used to imagine while lying in bed at night waiting for sleep to come were how I would design the bridge of the enterprise for optimal efficiency. Does this sound like you?
Have you ever wondered about the history of sailing? Sailing dates back thousands, if not tens of thousands of years. We may never know how sailing was developed, but kiteboarding is a different story.
