Notes to Competitors 

  1. Buoyancy aids are compulsory for all Geoff Sanders competitors, as well as division 7, 8, 9 & 10 paddlers whether they are racing in those divisions or higher divisions.
  2. Team leaders should decide if paddlers under 16 years of age in higher divisions should wear a buoyancy aid. 
  3. The race organiser has the final say on who has to wear a buoyancy aid.
  4. Team Leaders are responsible for ensuring that paddlers are properly equipped having taken into account the paddler’s health, fitness, capability, the course, the prevailing conditions and other risks associated with this race. 
  5. The race will be run in accordance with British Canoeing's Marathon Racing Committee rules. 
  6. Vertical number boards will be provided. 
  7. It is likely that paddlers will encounter other craft on the river. Rules of the river must be observed when racing – keep right. 
  8. Competitors must render their boats sufficiently buoyant to remain afloat and to support the crew in rough water in the event of capsize. No boat will be deemed to be sufficiently buoyant purely as a result of its construction (e.g. vac bagged/ sandwich or other construction) to fulfil this requirement, additional buoyancy will be required in the form of foam, air bags and/or sealed bulkheads. 
  9. During the course of a competition any Items discarded by a competitor anywhere other than in a proper bin, must be recovered by the athlete, their support crew or coach immediately. It is the athlete’s responsibility to ensure that this has happened. An event official witnessing non-compliance with this rule shall report the infringement to the race organiser and the offending competitor will be disqualified from the competition. 
  10. The club and its nominated officials cannot be held responsible for any loss of life, injury or damage to equipment however caused. 
  11. You agree that we may publish your Personal Information as part of the results of the Event and may pass such information to the governing body or any affiliated organisation for the purpose of insurance, licences or for publishing results either for the event alone or combined with or compared to other events. Results may include (but not be limited to) name, any club affiliation, race times, occupation and age category. This information will be published on the club website at the earliest opportunity. 
  12. Any disputes over race results must be made by the team leader within 1 hour of the results being published.
  13. If Environment Agency stream warnings are judged to be too high, or flow too strong, the race will be cancelled.
