Practice Capsize and Rescue

Capsize
Practicing capsizing is really fun and it is definitely the best way to learn how to deal with real life capsizes. Wear immersion gear (wetsuit or drysuit) or do it in warm water and weather. Take a course and you'll learn a lot of tips on what to do when you capsize, and how to empty the canoe and get yourself or others back in. If you practice it, capsize can be treated as a routine part of canoeing, and often the most fun and exhilerating part, even on the river!
