Eskimo Rescue

Also known as a "bow rescue", this is the one in which, after capsize and while upside down in the water, you

  1. lean forward, reach around your kayak, and thump loudly on the underside of your kayak to attract attention,

  2. sweep your hands forwards and backwards along the side of your boat, feeling for the arrival of a rescuer's boat bow, and

  3. grab the boat bow and lean on it to right yourself.

Note: when using a Backup you simply pull the Backup handle to avoid steps 1 and 2.
