Before attending an AquaPaddle, please familiarise yourself with the Route Description and Risk Assessment. These are linked to all the location pages. Each Location has it’s own and are a good source of information, not only for safety, but what to look out for as well.
A Buoyancy Aid is essential. It should be a standard Buoyancy Aid or Personal Floatation Device. If you are an experienced paddler, the an inflatable one that is worn on a belt would be allowed. It would be a self inflating type, but manual ones would be allowed.
All Paddle Boarders must have a waterway appropriate leash. If in doubt, wear a quick release wait belt leash. Ankle leashes should be avoided at all times. Safety first. Even a lake on a windy day can be dangerous with an ankle leash.
And always carry a Whistle that works in water with you.
