Club Rules Please read the following rules carefully. Kayaks are to be used in daytime only (sunrise to sunset) After sunset all boats must have a clearly visible white light . No paddlers to be solo after sunset . Life safety vests must be worn at all times when kayaking. No one is to kayak under the influence of alcohol, drugs or medications that could impair your ability to kayak safely. QKC members are not to allow non-members to use any QKC equipment, and are not to share our lock code with non-members. Kayaks are not to be used when in low visibility or when bad weather has been forecast. It is the members’ responsibility to check weather forecasts before heading out. Kayaks are expected to yield to all other boats on the Lake. Do not assume they can see you Large boats are not manoeuvrable. It may be impossible for them to avoid you. So it may be imperative that you get out of their way. Kayaks, paddles, or life vest may not be removed from the boat shed for any purpose other than kayaking directly in the adjacent waters. Transporting kayaks to other locations is strictly prohibited. Club members it is first come first served to use club boats. The above rules are to be followed without exception! Members in violation of any of these rules will forfeit their QKC membership privileges and dues. Club members are to treat the boats with care, any damage to boats will be at the members expense. Safety Recommendations – We also suggest that you: Paddle close to the shoreline – it will be easier for you to get to safety if you should flip over. If you need to cross, choose the shortest route to minimize your exposure in the channel, make sure there are no approaching boats, and cross quickly. Do not linger in the middle of the Lake. Avoid the water taxis and water taxi stops. Paddle with a partner – this is particularly important if you are venturing out away from the Frankton arm area. Pack a safety kit. It should contain a whistle, mirror, flashlight, sunscreen, water and a power bar or granola bar if you are venturing away from Frankton Arm. Purchase a dry bag for your cell phone. Dress in consideration of the weather and water temperature and NOT the air temperature.
I have read, understood, and accepted the rules for membership.
