Please read the article below.
・Please be aware that once you start kayaking, you are doing the sport at your own risk.
・There is no guarantee if you drop your belongings into the lake.
・Lake Sohara is not a big lake. Geographically, it is a lake that is easy to grasp because you can see the surrounding shores.
・You can enjoy kayaking for about 1 hour if you set the course with the goal of going around the uninhabited island.
・Because the area that was a forest before the eruption is submerged, there are places where trees are growing from the bottom of the lake.
・Lake Sohara is a lake where engine boards are prohibited. Therefore, there are no rescue boats. Please understand that there is no rescue system as kayaks going to rescue kayaks will not help.
・If you are overturned, it is important to give up first. There is nothing you can do about things that have fallen into the water, so please give up.
・People wearing life jackets, paddles, and kayaks will not sink, so hold on to something floating to calm yourself down.
・Even if you shout "Help me" or blow the whistle of your life jacket, please think that no one will come.
・If you catch your breath while floating, you will eventually reach the shore if the wind blows you away.
・When in a hurry, kick the water and approach the nearest shore.
・When you get to a place where you can't stand, throw away the water in the kayak and get on the kayak again. This is how to recover from a capsize.
・When you return to the original pier, return the kayak and life jacket to their original positions, act like nothing happened, take a shower and change clothes, and go home.
I think it was a valuable experience including tip over -recovery.
