Participants can provide their own gear or hire gear from the club. They will need a boat, paddle and buoyancy vest. Most single kayaks are suitable for use in the program.
Equipment can be hired from the club for the duration of the program. Families will transport equipment to each session so roof racks (or alternative) will be needed. If you need to hire gear please indicate this on the registration form.
Paddlers should wear suitable clothing that is warm and doesn’t inhibit swimming. Thermal clothing and waterproof top or wetsuit with waterproof top are examples of suitable clothing. They will need warm clothes to put on afterwards.
The Coaches on the program are experienced canoeists who will use the Paddle Passporte coaching program to facilitate the coaching sessions. There will be about 5 paddlers in each coaching group.
