|Not sure what you mean by "faster than most people can swim," but presume you know that almost no one, not even the strongest swimmer, can "outswim" even a common, non-storm-related rip current anyway, at least in terms of fighting it head-on in an effort to get back to shore. That's why the recommendation is to escape the rip by swimming out of it 'sideways,' if you will, parallel to shore until released by the current, and then swimming diagonally back to shore.|
Forgive me if I've entirely missed you point, Target, and please explain your meaning if so. Thanks!
