Rules:  The Races will be held in accordance with the BCU Marathon Committee rules. These include:

  1. Buoyancy aids are compulsory for paddlers ranked in Divisions 7, 8 and 9, and the Lightnings. In other divisions it is at the discretion of the Team Leaders as to whether or not paddlers under 16 years of age should wear buoyancy aids.
  2. Proof of Comprehensive BCU membership must be provided at check-in (either photocopy or card), otherwise a £5.00 Event Fee is payable. The exceptions are juniors ranked in divisions 7, 8 or 9 who are members of clubs with registered junior sections, who should produce their registered junior section card instead.
  3. Regional Number Boards will be supplied and must be displayed on the boat, fixed with a pin or other secure fitting. Lost Boards will be chargeable to the paddler.
  • Race colours must be worn to earn Hasler points. If any paddler has any medical condition or other pre-disposition that could compromise the paddler’s safety on the water it is Norwich Canoe Club Policy that they MUST wear a buoyancy aid at all times whilst on the water regardless of their age, ability or the weather conditions on the day. It is the responsibility of the individual paddlers themselves (or their guardians if they are a junior) to ensure they adhere to this rule. Participation: To the extent permitted by applicable laws, Norwich Canoe Club accept no liability for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential loss or damage to anybody (whether arising in contract, tort including negligence or otherwise) arising out of or in connection with any of its activities except for personal injury or death of any person caused by negligence
  • Norwich Canoe Club may take and use pictures of the event and individual competitors to promote the activities of the Club and the sport. This will be done in accordance with British Canoeing Guidelines for use of Photographic & Filming Equipment.
  • Kayak/Canoe racing is an “Assumed risk” activity. Participants and people with Parental/ legal responsibility for a participant should be aware of and accept these risks. Participants should accept responsibility for their own actions and involvement.
  • Additionally if any visiting Team Leader is aware of any paddler from their own club who they feel should be wearing a buoyancy aid because they have a medical condition or other medical pre-disposition that could compromise that paddlers safety on the water it is that Team Leader’s responsibility to automatically ban that paddler from getting on the water until he/ she complies with the above rule.
  • It is highly recommended that footwear is worn by any paddlers required to portage.
