Drowning in Lake Ontario

Just heard the 11:00 news, a 35 year old man drowned while paddling a boat
in prep for the dragon boat races here in Lake Ontario. Water temp about mid 60's, can't find body, S and R still at it. Just off the shoreline, from the reports, not more than a few hundred yards out. Dragon boats? Dangerous? Eeegads.

Reminds us of the possible troubles underneath that hull...so beautiful and so deadly, hard sometimes to reconcile the tranquility of movement on the water and realities of mishaps.

Be careful out there brothers and sisters. So regrettable.
