Packraft whitewater enough, and you will eventually find yourself taking an unplanned swim. When that happens, the best option is often to quickly climb back into the boat while still floating down the river. You'll have better maneuverability to avoid upcoming drops or strainers and better protection from rocks if you are back in your boat and paddling than if you are swimming. Practicing getting back into your boat - wet reentry - under controlled conditions will help the process go more quickly when you need to do it for real.
