NOTE: During peer paddles, each paddler is responsible for their own safety on the water and should be able to self-rescue, be aware of the conditions and their ability to paddle in them and their need for an appropriate Personal Floatation Device. (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.
