Kayaler’s Body Recovered

/ 97.3 The Eagle
            A Comox Valley Ground Search and Rescue manager is warning outdoor enthusiasts to always carry appropriate gear and supplies on any adventure after a kayaker went missing this weekend. Search manager Paul Berry says two men launched their kayaks from Union Bay with plan to paddle to a small island off Denman Island sometime after 11 p.m. Saturday. Both men ended up in the water but only one made it to shore to call for help, leading crews and later the R-C-M-P to search for the missing kayaker. Berry says the two men were friends and had done similar trips before but the kayaks they were using weren’t specialized for ocean water.
