River Rambles





River Rambles are social paddles designed for female social paddlers.  They consist of both club and inter-club social paddling activities for women of all ages, skill level and boat types.  The objective is to provide opportunities to get out on the water in a friendly, social and safe manner and in the company of women lead by qualified female Ramble Leaders.

Future River Rambles sessions are currently being scheduled for early 2019, with information coming out in December 2018.

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.
