Singpore Canoe Marathon 4

To the rescue.

There were safety paddlers at the side line and they were on their feet when on of the contestants went in the water. It is virtually impossible to get back into the canoe just by oneself. These rescue paddlers positioned themselves on either end of the turned canoe and first flipped it over to drain out the water. Then they held it steady for the contestant to get back in.

Hmmmmm...not so hard to get back in a swamped kayak, Ayush...but, best to not fall out.

I am guessing your mean't on their feet figuratively...or, is it shallow water? smile

Clever stuff Ayush
Some real action then! It would add a bit of excitement to the event.
Good job they were there to give a hand
These safety paddlers are doing a great job Ayush!
I imagine they were kept quite busy Ayush
Good to learn the youngsters are being so well looked after.
