Walk-out Points

Walk-out points are a special category of Exit points in that they allow the seatrekker(s) to walk out and away from the coastline.

A Walk-out point may be used for various purposes, such as for Safety, or for Planning.

For Safety

Weather and conditions at sea can deteriorate rapidly and it might be vital to get away from the shore. Walk-out points enable not only to get out of the safely water, but also to get away from the coast and reach a more sheltered area.

It may also be necessary to walk out and reach an urbanised area for the following reasons:

  • Health related: to seek medical support should any member of the team not feel well or hurt himself
  • If the team has ran out of water and/or food

For Planning

For various reasons, not limited to weather, health or supplies it may be necessary or desired to get away from the coast. For example:

  • Walk-out point are used as starting points for hiking sections of the trek, or
  • The seatrekker(s) may simply wish to shorten or abort the ongoing trek.
