A minimum of eight people (paddlers, sweep and coach combined) is required for paddling to go ahead as that many are required to launch the small boat. Paddlers are advised to check their internet on the morning of each session (a) to determine if any late cancellations mean that the numbers are not sufficient for paddling and (b) to ensure that a Sweep's name AND a Coach's name has been entered on the roster. If numbers are in sufficient OR if there is no Coach AND Sweep, the paddle session is cancelled.
