    A recent mishap involving one of the bigger boats demonstrated one simple suggestion when it comes time to pull swamped rowers out of the drink. This is particularly important towards the beginning and end of the rowing season, when water temps are lower and getting swimmers out quickly is imperative. Rescue craft are encouraged to get rower extracted from the water and ferried to the nearest shore. Trips back and forth across the water waste valuable time when others are still in the water. Once the full crew is assembled on the shore, heat is lost more slowly and they can be shuttled the longer distance to a dock where the warmup process can begin. Your thoughts?
