How many canoes do you need?
A canoe must have at least 2 people in it. The maximum is 4 – which could be with 1 or 2 adults with 2 children. The maximum number of adults is 3 (with no children). There is a weight limit to each canoe of 40 stone (254kg).
As a general rule each child under 14 is to be supervised 1 to 1. Children 15 and above could be supervised 1 adult to 2 in some situations, such as both being competent swimmers.
When there are 2 adults and 2 children in a canoe, and if the upper age limit is 10 years for the children, we find a greater risk of capsize. Typically we advise that the children can sit side by side on the middle molded seat to improve stability.
Where there is 1 adult and 3 children there must be an older teenager (17 years) who can look after themselves independently, i.e. strong swimmer, water confident etc. and also take responsibility for one of the other children with their parents/Guardians consent.
