Two experienced kayakers have died in Howe Sound, northwest of Vancouver. I'm not keen on going into the wherewithalls - it's well covered in this newspaper report and others - and I'm sure all the forums will soon be well abuzz.
But once more we can learn from the tragic mistakes made, and work to make bloody sure that this isn't you or me in the same position. As always, it comes down to wearing the right gear for the sport and the occasion, and not dicking around with the weather.
People depend on us coming home at the end of the day.
