Paddling during lockdown 2

With a second lockdown upon us all Club paddling activities have been suspended. If you do wish to paddle please follow the Government and British Canoeing advice which can be found here:

https://www.britishcanoeing.org.uk/news/2020/recreational-paddling-permitted-under-new-government-measures.

The important points being that; the guidance issued by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and Sport England confirms that recreational paddling is permitted within the government measures so long as you are:

  • On your own
  • With the people you live with (your household)
  • Your support bubble
  • On your own and with one person from another household – this could be a coach for 1:1 coaching

In addition as club members: 

  • Paddlers should restrict their paddlesport activities to environments which are well within their capabilities, alert friends and family to their activity and predicted return times and ensure they have a means to call for help, handy at all times.
  • If you do meet others on the water you should maintain social distancing (except in an emergency) and make sure you arrive and depart as your two.
