WWCKC Annual New Years Day Paddle, Sunday, January 1, 2017 at 11:00am
Grand River, Petro Canada (formerly the GTO) on Hwy 24 just south of Cambridge to Glen Morris
Moving water
To participate you must be moderately experienced and must wear either a wet suit or a dry suit.
Dress warmly and bring extra socks and mitts. The persons with a wetsuit must bring extra clothes in case of a submersion.
Cold water paddling can be very dangerous if you end up in the water. Cold water can kill by:
  1) Cold shock - possible heart attack due to sudden submersion and exposure to cold water
  2) Gasp - Sudden immersion in cold water results in an involuntary gasp. This means you cannot stop the gasp, which is followed by 1 to 3 minutes of involuntary hyperventilation. Hyperventilation can cause cardiac arrest, cramping, disorientation and confusion.
All paddlers must be aware of the risks, and must be prepared for submersion, cold weather, wind, and rain.
Meet at the parking lot beside the Petro Canada (formerly the GTO) on Hwy 24 just south of Cambridge at 11am (click to see map).
