Buoyancy Aids

Personal flotation devices must be worn by all paddlers in Divisions 7 – 13 inclusive. For juniors racing in higher divisions, the use of buoyancy aids will be at their team manager’s discretion.

The Race organiser reserves the right to insist that all competitors wear buoyancy aids in the case of adverse water or weather conditions.


Numbers on Boats

Paddlers in Divisions 1 – 8 should use the approved yellow number plates.

Paddlers in Divisions 9 – 13 should display their number clearly on their boat, either by using tape, or collect a laminated number card from the control point. (Please return these after use!)


Starting Order

The start time for the first division will be at 12 noon, the order of starting being from Division 1, through to 13. Please bear in mind that there may not be any paddlers in the higher divisions, therefore please be prepared to start your race from midday.

Paddlers should assemble on the water behind the start line, and will be called forward to the starting line, by division.

When numbers have been checked, the starter will begin your race with the words “READY, GO”.

It is your responsibility to be at the start on time.


Rules of the Waterway

Other craft may be using the waterway. Paddlers will need to be able to cope with the wash and bow waves from these boats. Please paddle on the right side of the waterway, and be courteous to other water users, fishermen etc.



All turns should be made in an anti-clockwise direction, after passing the turn marshal.



Paddlers should pass the finish line in their kayak/canoe (pay attention John G ! ).



Paddlers of all ages and abilities are very welcome to take part in this event, however individual clubs should ensure that their paddlers are appropriately equipped, and suitably experienced to participate in the race. If it is deemed necessary that an individual requires a support paddler, this should be provided by the individual’s club wherever possible.

If you see someone in difficulty or who has capsized, please stop to offer them help and provide assistance if requested to do so.



Times will be posted at the check-in point after the race has finished. If you require a copy of these, please send an S.A.E. to the race organiser, or your e-mail address.


Toilet Facilities

A portaloo / toilet tent will be available.


“Canoeing and kayaking are “Assumed risk” – “Water contact sports” that may carry attendant risks. Participants should be aware of and accept these risks, and be responsible for their own action and involvement”.    British Canoe Union statement.


Above all, have a safe and enjoyable day, Happy Paddling!
