A night paddle to Southbank and back.
Paddling at night has extra dangers. You must have adequate lights (it is critical that other boats see you easily from a distance). Basic lights consist of a front white light (e.g. head torch) and a rear WHITE light. Glo-sticks alone or one unidirectional light are not sufficient (but a good addition to your PFD). Red bike lights are not acceptable. Bring warm gear in case it is cold. Remember – NO GLOW = NO GO!
- Lights! – front and back and bright and white (spare batteries too)
- PFD – you will be required to wear a PFD at all times
- Group – we need to keep together as a group
- Sides – we need to stay to the sides of the river as much as practical to reduce exposure to other (bigger) boats.
- Warm gear – it may be cold… bring sufficient warm gear. Keep additional dry gear in your backpack/car in case you get wet!
- Towel and swimming gear if you want to swim in the Southbank lagoons
- Money for food (or bring your own).
Remember there are warm showers and a changing area in the shed complex.
