The American Canoe Association (ACA) wants to make sure you stay safe on your next paddling trip. In partnership with the US Coast Guard they have created some new infographics to remind beginners and pros alike of a few important safety tips . 

Remember, even though paddling is a great sport, it can also be dangerous.   

BUT, don’t be frightened off, just take the time to learn how to be safe: 

Take a class

 

Know your limits

 

Make a plan

 

Wear your life jacket

 

Practice defensive boating

 

Communicate with your paddling partners

 

And, before you go, remember your check list

 

 Check out the ACA website for the rest of the graphics or a wide variety of other educational resources! Feel free to print and share them to keep everyone safe.
