3 - You must please bring paddling clothing appropriate for the weather & water temperature, plus a well-fitting Personal Buoyancy Aid/Personal Flotation Device and paddling footwear, both of which are mandatory.

You should also bring dry clothes to change into & a sun hat/sun cream etc. as necessary.

7 - There is a loo on site with hand sanitation facilities.

8 - Unless you are camping on the site, please park in the fisheries car park (next to the Lambton & Jackson building with the red roof) opposite the lake entrance metal gate, which is marked 'campsite'. Walk across the road - please take care, it's on a bend and cars can come around there quickly - to the lake gate, which will remain locked. So please walk through the little wooden entrance hut. Parking space is limited so please park considerately. Thank you.

9 - Please watch out for uneven slippery ground on the site and look out for vehicles on the road and on the site. On arrival, please check-in with our Instructor before launching.

Please launch from and return on your knees and also paddle on your knees when you are within 2 board's length from the lake edges, which are shallow or the pontoons. Please do not leave kit lying around in the grass. There will be hand sanitisers available at the a launch flag. Thank you.

Any spectator aged 17 years or younger must be supervised at all times by their parent or legal guardian whilst on the site and must be kept away from the lake edges. Sorry but a parent/legal guardian can not paddle themselves and leave their child unsupervised in the van/car or at the site. Dogs are welcome but must kept on their leads at all times.
