Kayak sit in: Emptying your Kayak by yourself and getting back in using a paddle float
Begin by capsizing your kayak, then fasten the paddle float to your paddle and blow it up fully.
It will serve as an outrigger so that you can climb back in your kayak.
To do this, place the paddle at a right angle to the kayak with the blade that does not have the float positioned behind the coaming.
Grab the paddle and coaming with one hand and put your arm over the shaft of the paddle. Hook your other arm onto the life line on the other side or on the edge of the coaming.
Lift yourself up by pushing on your arms and hooking your leg onto the paddle shaft near to the float.
Slide one leg into the kayak followed by the 2nd, and then swing yourself in to the seated position.
Then, simply empty the kayak using a hand pump and/or a sponge and replace the spray skirt.
