Paddle Safety

DPB_Logo_Initials.png

SafeTrax is connected to RYA and is an app you can download if you are paddling alone ( not recommended in winter) , so if you ever find you need help or someone else does, you can be connected to the rescue services at a press of a button and it can also tell others if you have not returned.

If you are fairly new to paddling on the river or paddling 'out of season', these videos could  help keep you warmer and safer.

When weather is perfect, paddling is easy but wind directions and river flow  can change. Our Skills, Safety &  Rescue Classes are suitable for all ages and help you become more 'river savvy' and have a wide range of paddling techniques to paddle faster and further! DPB is a paddleboard club you can join that goes on excursions if you have your own board. Click the DPB button for more info.
