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.
