It is essential that you notify the trip leader / contact person that you plan to paddle with them. Trip leaders are listed in the paddle details in the Eddy Lines Newsletter and in the details section of the calendar. Please let your leaders know your skill level and equipment. If no notification is received the trip leader / contact person may decide to paddle elsewhere.
A PFD (personal flotation device) must be worn at all times while on the water, fully zipped up or buckled closed. No exceptions.
Water and sunscreen are important. Make sure that you have enough water to keep you hydrated for the day.
A pump is needed for a kayak, a bailer for a canoe, as well as a sponge to remove excess water.
Cold water paddles: These paddles are for experienced paddlers only and require a full change of clothing in a waterproof bag.
