Cold Water Boot Camp

This video is something that every whitewater boater should watch (perhaps instead of telling tasteless river guide jokes). In Grand Canyon, where the water comes out of Glen Canyon Dam at about 6 Degrees Celsius, all boaters are required to wear PFDs at all times. This explains exactly why: Cold Water Survival - Cold Water Boot Camp!

How many hyopthermic rafters does it take to rescue a hypothermic kayaker?

Three - one to announce it is too cold for beer and to pull out the whiskey, one to ensure pfds are donned in the face of impending doom, and one to make sure nobody gets speared by an oar.

That is a great video. I just saw it and was going to post it here. I think the best info is the one minute to get your breathing under control and 10 minutes of useful movement.
