Many people can paddle kayak a life time and never fall into the water. But even some very highly experienced kayakers get struck by accidents, some of them deadly. So you might never have to know a thing about safety. And you might know a lot abouit safety, and still not be helped by it. The question then is, what is a reasonable level of interest to aim for?
