All paddlers must be current members of an affiliated Paddle Victoria club.
Any female paddler whose club is hosting a river ramble and meets the Ramble Leader requirements, (ie skill level, ratio’s etc), is eligible to participate.
For paddlers whose club is not participating as yet, they may participate (at the host Ramble leaders discretion) as a guest for 3 paddles only. They may only participate again if their club commits to hosting a ramble. (ie if Bayswater Canoe Club is not participating in the network, their female paddlers can participate in only 3 paddles each and may not participate again unless Bayswater joins the network and hosts a Ramble).
If a Ramble was near capacity in regards to ratio’s, it would be acceptable that Guest paddlers are not accepted to ensure networked paddlers have access to the paddle. To assist the Ramble Leader in their Risk Assessment, each paddler must have completed their club’s basic skills or beginner skills course or self assess that they are capable of participating in the paddle with no assistance or coaching from other participants.
