Safety on the water

Home » About the coracle » Safety on the water

While using coracles can be enjoyable, the nature of the craft can make it a dangerous activity to participate in.

The Society has published guidelines which we strongly recommend are followed by those who go out on the water. These are available to download below

In addition to these safety guidelines, we strongly advise you make yourself aware of the dangers of water quality, in particular Weil's Disease. For more information on Weil's Disease, please visit the British Canoe Union website (link will open in a new window.
