(PFD’s are compulsory for paddlers under 14 years of age). While the organiser/coordinator are responsible for notifying authorities if someone does not return within a reasonable time after the scheduled return time, they are not responsible for rescuing paddlers. It is advised that paddlers stay in groups and one paddler takes a mobile phone with them in the event of a mishap/emergency.
