8,000+ kayak and canoe guides distributed

25 September 2013

The new safety reference guide released for kayakers and canoers has been welcomed by paddlers across South Australia with more than 8,000 copies distributed so far.

The Kayak and Canoe Safety Reference Guide was published in June in response to the growing popularity of the human-powered water sports.

The 30-page waterproof booklet was designed as a quick reference guide to the most important safety rules while on the water.

Copies have been snapped up by sporting clubs, equipment retailers, schools and individuals who paddle in open water and along the state’s rivers.

It is a companion guide to the South Australian recreational boating safety handbook.

The guide, a kayak and canoe safety equipment sticker and a Paddle Safe DVD are available from:

The Boating Safety Unit
1 Wright Rd
Walkley Heights
or you may request copies by calling 1300 183 046
or emailing dpti.recreationalboatingunit@sa.gov.au
The guide is also online.
