Joe Jacobi paddles with SCK. Cameras Rolling.
A busy weekend was kicked off today with a media blitz for the Kids Don't Float program, originally started in Alaska . It was a timely reminder on the eve of the biggest boating day of the year. A rack of kids life jackets has now been placed at the Skidaway boat landing for anyone to use on a daily basis. To help launch this nationwide program in the Savannah area , Joe Jacobi, USA's only paddling Olympic Gold medallist was there to high light the dangers and benefits of sensible behaviour on or near the water. SCK supplied the kayaks and also got behind the program. I got to paddle with Joe, a decent chap and his 7 year old daughter. Check out WTOC tonite. We'll see if we can get a clip and post it here.
