Paddler Requirements

 All Paddlers sign event declaration that they understand the risks and acknowledge that they have read and understood the event water safety plan including their responsibilities in it (eg helping a distressed paddler, rendering assistance etc.)

Paddlers are encouraged to carry a mobile phone in a water proof bag. This can be used if withdrawing or in an emergency situation.

 Paddlers are encouraged to carry a red or orange flare. It is mandatory for ski and SUP paddlers to wear a PFD, and for Prone paddlers to be wearing a legrope attached to their board.

 Paddlers are required to be connected to their craft at all times by leg leash. This increases the capacity of each individual to self rescue significantly.
