Re: Kayak Intro and Rescue Day on Lake Zurich
Sorry haven't checked the forum since the Summer but I welcome your comments. I was also unaware of the change last Summer, again only brought to my attention in the Autumn.
We have no direct contact with the Strassenvekehrs- und Schifffahrtsamt. If you don't have a registration number I guess they think they don't need to inform you of changes. So for those of you with larger vessels and more contact with these people it's great that you comment on forums like these. So thank you. And the wind strength as you said above a much more useful warning for all water users.
Either way for kayakers, if your not comfortable in strong winds or rough water, and the lights flash, it's time to paddle close to the lake shore or get off the water. Even medium strength winds can cause problems in a sea kayak if you're not used to it.
