Kayakers Towed To Shore After Losing Paddles

October 27, 2013

On Monday [Oct 21] cries for help were heard on North Shore, which turned out to be two kayakers who had lost their paddles.

A Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre spokesperson said, “A cellphone call was received from a member of the public at their Pembroke residence on North Shore reporting cries for help heard from crew of small boat just offshore between Government House and Devonshire Dock.

“A police land unit was tasked to attend and confirmed that two people on board a small punt or kayak were in difficulty approximately 150 yards offshore.

“Broadcasts were made for assistance and a local boat attended, towing the sit-on kayak into Devonshire Dock. The police unit was able to confirm that the two people started calling for assistance after losing both paddles.”

    I always thought getting stuck somewhere without a paddle was figurative and not literal.
