Module 03 - Trip Planning and Preparation
Keeping an eye to the sky is an important part of planning any outdoor adventure. In most cases, your safety and your enjoyment of your paddle trip will depend entirely on the weather conditions.

Hurricanes, thunderstorms and fog can roll in as ‘fast as lightning’. So what’s the best practice for tackling bad weather? Be prepared for it.
