I`m keen to hear what members think of the practice of tethering themselves to their yaks. Not for times of minimal tidal flow or on lakes etc, but in situations when the worst thing that could happen to you would be to be seperated from your kayak even by just a couple of metres and to not be able to make back the distance due to very rapid tidal flow. Just a 1.5/ 2.0 metre coiled leash clipped from a midpoint on the kayak to the corresponding hip re belt or loop etc. Could make a big difference if you are anchored and find yourself carried off with the tide whilst your kayak waves you goodbye.
