there is a high risk of rip currents. rip currents are powerful
channels of water flowing quickly away from shore...which occur
most often at low spots or breaks in the sandbar and in the
vicinity of structures such as groins...jetties and piers. heed
the advice of lifeguards and the beach patrol. pay attention to
flags and posted signs. if you become caught in a rip current...
do not panic. remain calm and begin to swim parallel to shore.
once you are away from the force of the rip current...begin to
swim back to the beach. do not attempt to swim directly against a
rip current. even a strong swimmer can become exhausted quickly.
