Kayakers rescued from Boston Harbor

Last week, two kayakers were rescued from the chilly waters of outer Boston Harbor after their kayaks tipped, the Boston Globe reports. The Coast Guard responded after they placed a 911 call from a cellphone. The pair, who were wearing PFDs and dry suits, showed signs of hypothermia after clinging to a buoy for an hour in 3-foot swells, 12-mph winds, and 52-degree water.

Although the two seemed to be relatively prepared, it’s a good reminder that well-honed rescue techniques are a must when going out in those conditions.

It’s certainly not a leisurely paddle along the Mystic.
