why would you go out in this weather this morning ?? they both need to pay for the cost of the recovery etc


Two men who went kayaking despite a severe weather and wind warning being in place across parts of the State have been rescued off Garden Island.

Water police received a distress call about 10.30am, when one of the men’s kayaks lost its outrigger in the wild water, causing him to capsize and his EPIRB to activate.

RAC Rescue, the Department of Fire and Emergency Services and the Cockburn Volunteer Sea Search and Rescue were called to assist the Australian Maritime Safety Authority in rescuing the stranded kayakers.

 I was in Freo this weekend, I've never seen such a ferocious ocean. Even the harbour was howling and had chop and swell. These peanuts absoloutely have to pay, facepalm of the highest order. 


Love the West!

The no epirb outcome would have been way nastier. If they were thinking this was a good day to hit the ocean I'd love to see the conditions they would not head out in.
