On the other coast, but still relevant to those of us who do or guide urban paddles:

I think this accident shows that safety is about understanding your environment.

The first water saftey lesson learned was when I was about 10 years old. We were going fishing. Lake Chamlaine was calm. We were about a mile off shore and running
as fast as 7 hp outboard could push an old wood boat.
My dad looked around and saw a big black cloud. With no hesitation he turned that boat around on a dime. We made it back to shore just in time .
That always stuck with me and that was almost 65 years ago.

The lesson: understand the enviroment your in and pay attention to it.
