Tips to the paddle participants
Be aware that, from when you go into the water in the morning to when you disembark in the afternoon, you can rely only on what you have brought with you. So here we have...
Tips for beginners on clothing and supplies to carry aboard:

•It seems self-evident, but it is important to remember that it can be sunny or cloudy, it can get hot or cold, can be windy or rainy: the conditions can vary several times during the day. We may have to wait soaked and out of the water for hours in case of emergency. It is good to carry a spare dry wool or fleece (NOT cotton!) change of clothes: socks, the “wooly undershirt of grandpa", caps, as well as sunscreen.
•Keep in mind that wet cotton absorbs body heat and is harmful in the event of adverse weather conditions. Wool or fleece on the other hand, even when soaked, retain part of your body heat.
• Sturdy shoes protect the foot and ankle both on the ground, during embarkation and disembarkation, and in the water in case of capsizing.
• Remember that you are doing physical activity, and so it is very important to bring water to drink!
•Warm up before each departure, avoid getting wet right away if not properly equipped.
