The rotobat was a short kayak at the time...

Weathercast gives you almost hourly reports for the last 6 days. (Some of the metoffice links no longe...

Using whistles on rivers

The recent search on Tawe was apparently initiated by member of the public who heard whistle blasts - obviously in the mountains multiple blasts means help needed, so may need to keep signals to the minimum necessary in popular areas...
