It may be Spring, but the water is still Cooold !
Some intrepid boaters, the crew teams in their shells and a few kayakers have been on the water already and have realized the water is still VERY cold !
So it's time to review the basics of boating in the early Spring:
- As a rule of thumb, It's about 10 degrees colder on the water than on land. Wear layers of clothing with a wind breaking shell on top and bring along hats and gloves.
- Make a float plan (see following article) so someone will know you are going out... and call to tell them that you have returned safely when you get back.
- Check the weather. Use the links included on the left margin to see the current weather in Norwalk from the weather station atop the Cove Administration building and the links for Intellicast forecast and current radar.
- Wear a life jacket. Even if you don't in the Summer.
