The participants are required to wear outdoor clothing according to the weather. The canoe can capsize and then the paddler is forced into the water. It is wise to take a set of spare clothing and a towel with you.

By taking part in two consecutive same dicipline guidances (kayaking basics and up from basics / canoeing basics and up from basics) you will qualify an general European EPP (Euro Paddle Pass) EPP1 standard. This requires the completion of the otherwise voluntary rescue exercise. You can get a EPP card for this for an additional cost.
