He parked under a bridge and was fishing, even though rule 1 with the lake is you don't stop under a bridge. He also didn't have lights showing which way he was facing. This is at 6:30 in the morning, so before the sun came up. Lights are kind of important.
Long story short, he was where he wasn't supposed to be and the coxswain couldn't see him. We T-boned the guy and his kayak flipped. We had to flag down another team's motor boat to help the guy out of the water, despite the string of expletives he was throwing our way. Real ball of sunshine, him.
It was almost entirely his fault, and the funny part is this isn't the first time we've hit the guy. Last time was last semester, and it was a similar situation. The guy didn't have proper lighting, it was dark and early, and since our lake is run like a road with traffic going either way, he was sitting across the lane and we plowed into him. He didn't flip that time.
You'd think the idiot would learn his lesson at some point.
