Beware of rip currents!

Who knows that we are in the Rip Current Awareness Week (June 3-9)?  This NOAA web page has some good info and advices.  Particularly these:

  • Don’t swim against a rip current – it will just tire you out.
  • Escape the rip current by swimming parallel to the beach until you are free.
  • If you are unable to swim out of the rip current, float or calmly tread water.
  • When out of the current, swim toward the shore at an angle away from the rip current.
Enjoy the beach, have a great and safe summer!
