After a long winter without paddling, we decided to begin the season with a swim and some kayak rescues.
My apprentice, Mattia from Rome, Italy found this ritual rather peculiar. My son Olav joined us, and found out too late that his drysuit's zipper was not locked properly. So we all got a feel of the 4 degrees "warm" water.
