PFD (PERSONAL FLOTATION DEVICE)
Regardless of the season, all paddlers under 16 years old are required to wear a PFD or life jacket when on the water. PFDs are provided by the club or can be purchased in the sports stores. Feel free to speak to the coaches regarding most suitable PFD.
PADDLING GEAR AND EQUIPMENT
Cap or Hat
Due to the delicacy of the hulls of racing kayaks and canoes, regular running shoes or even water shoes, should not be worn in the boats. In warm weather bare feet are the best option. On colder days neoprene paddling socks or a wool hiking socks will help to keep your feet warm. The cotton is not recommended as it has no insulating properties.
