Safety tips for paddlers
A NEW safety guide for canoe and kayak paddlers keen to test their skills in fast-moving water has been released.
“Diagrams included in the publication help paddlers identify fastmoving water hazards and checklists reinforce key safety considerations in trip preparation,” Department of Transport waterways safety management director Chris Mather said.
“Being specifically for fast-moving water paddling, it’s thought to be the only publication of its kind in Australia and New Zealand and has sparked significant interest from other jurisdictions.”
