Solo paddling allows club members to paddle (almost) anytime on the river. Members must agree and adhere to covid safe protocols, and potentially act as “covid safe” delegates of the club. A list of what you did to do to become a solo paddler is listed here. Once you complete the solo paddling requirements you will be given access to a key at UQ sport and codes to access the shed and the shed bookings.
Access is subject to government and UQ Sport Covid restrictions which could change at any time.
Booking Shed Access
To go for a solo paddle you must first book shed access time. This ensures you do not overlap with other paddling activities and shed access. Check the list of booked time for the dates and times already booked so you do not overlap (there is a filter box at the bottom of the list). Solo paddlers cannot book more than a week in advance (this ensures access for other activities are not interfered with).
Groups of Solo Paddlers
Up to four solo paddlers can paddle together. They must all be club approved solo paddlers. The solo paddler that books shed time will indicate in their booking if the paddle is open to other solo paddlers (up to 4 paddlers total). They will act as the club’s covid-safe delegate. If you would like to paddle with them you need to contact them directly beforehand.
Contacting Solo Paddlers
Solo paddlers can use their access code to register their contact details via the website. Other solo paddlers can use their access code to look up these details and contact the solo paddler directly if the solo paddler chooses to make them available.
