Safety Briefing

We spend 45 minutes in the morning to brief participants on how to control the boat, and what to do in the event of a capsize.

We also refrain pregnant guests from participating, and those with medical history to bring along their medication.

Those with injuries should also identify themselves

Schedule: News & Updates

Personal Flotation Device

Usage of personal flotation devices (PFDs) are compulsory. Nobody will be allowed near the water without wearing one

Water Confidence

All participants will be required to perform the Water Confidence Test by swimming a short distance with their PFDs equipped.

This is to identify those with hydrophobia, and those who cannot swim.

This helps us in the event of a capsize

Safety Boat

A motorized safety boat will be in the vicinity at all times during lake practices and races.

In the event of a capsize, the boat can take up to 10 paddlers per trip.
