All participants in club trips or meets do so at their own risk, and neither the Club nor its officers can accept any liability for loss or injury of any kind sustained whilst on a Club trip, meet or other activity.

As a section of the Camping and Caravanning Club, our camping events are restricted to Camping and Caravanning Club members only (including Canoe Camping Club members), anyone participating must be a member of the Camping and Caravanning Club before attending a camping meet. We do allow guest paddlers on most day trips.

  

2. CCC SAFETY POLICY (SUMMARY)

The Safety Policy can be viewed using the main menu of this website. Key points of the Safety Policy are summarised below.

  • Please ensure you and your canoe, are appropriate for the trip and properly equipped.

  • A briefing will normally precede the trip/event.  

  • A competent adult must accompany young people aged between 8 and 18 years who must have the parents signed permission to canoe (a form is supplied).

Canoeing and kayaking are ‘assumed risk’ ‘water contact’ activities, however serious accidents are very rare. Participants should be aware of and accept these risks, and be responsible for their own action and involvement.
