No need to start calling people stupid. I almost always fish with my drogue out the back, as I like casting forward in front of my drift. Never even been close to having a problem.Patch wrote:You weren't the only one to notice that - all five/six that were still present when I arrived were positioned so - bloody stupid imo I guess some people don't like drifting backwards.awondering wrote:I noticed sea anchors be deployed in a manner that set the kayakers with their backs to the sea, and as I said in the beginning of this,
Glad to see some of you are starting to seriously think about the wetsuit, hopefully no-one else has to be rescued before more people start wearing them.
Also I started out wearing a wetsuit (I also surf alot), but generally wouldn't wear it on the kayak again. Wetsuits are great when IN the water, but horrible when semi-dry.
So, bloody stupid I may be, but I'm going to keep drifting forward wearing my semi-dry pants and top.
