Hopefully he will be ok. I would never kayak, this time of year on the North Shore without a life vest.

It is unfortunate that the news SA cannot get into a pro active mode and address two important questions. Why did this happen? What could be done to keep this from happening again ? [In this case to someone else]. We could all learn so much from others misfortune. An accident prevention view point would serve our community well.
