Sea state isn't the issue here. The problem is that inexperienced kayakers see water and think that it's just as safe as any other section/area of water. In my eyes that sea looks fun to play around on with the correct equipment and training
but this is true in every situation alittle experience/knowledge is a dangours thing.
It's not fair to get the RNLI out for people that are under prepared under trained and just idiots I think they should be charged rescue cost and a vine but thats just me
Rant over! going to go make a cuppa and get back to work as my boat needs it engine back.
