All provisions of ‘Rule 5 - Safety’ apply and participants are deemed to be aware of and accept these.

Participants specific attention is drawn to;

  1. All Div 7, 8 & 9 competitors must wear approved buoyancy aids, in accordance with rule 5) b) iii).
  2. Should conditions require it, paddlers in Div 1 – 6 may also be required to wear buoyancy aids in accordance with rule 5) d) i).
  3. Team Leaders are responsible for ensuring all boats have adequate buoyancy.

  5. There is a large pleasure cruiser that may be running trips – all competitors are to be aware and are advised to stay well clear of this.


Canoeing and Kayaking is by its nature an unpredictable sport and therefore inherently involves an element of risk. Participants should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own action and involvement.
