Please read the following carefully:

I understand that:

  • The total course or expedition fee is required on booking to confirm a place.
  • If I make an alteration to a booking once a confirmation has been sent, I must give my new instructions in writing at least 30 days before the start of the course or expedition.
  • I can cancel and receive a full refund, minus a €25.00 administration charge if I cancel more than 60 days prior to the course or expedition date.
  • If I cancel within 60 days but more than 30 days prior to the course or expedition I will be entitled to a refund of 50% of the course or expedition fee.
  • If I cancel my booking within 30 days prior to the start of the course or expedition I will not be entitled to a refund.
  • In The Flow Coaching will notify the customer of cancellation as soon as it is able to do so where on reasonable grounds cancellation of a course or expedition is believed necessary due to unsuitable or dangerous conditions. In the event of this happening we will offer customers the choice of either a full refund of the fee paid or another booking on a different date.
  • My chosen course or expedition may be hazardous and I accept a certain element of risk.
  • If I’m under the age of 18 I need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
  • It is my responsibility to arrange cancellation and curtailment insurance, as well as accident coverage as necessary.
  • On arrival at my course or expedition I am required to fill out a waiver and medical questionaire. This must be completed and signed before going on the water with In The Flow Coaching.
  • I am required to advise In the Flow Coaching of any medical or other condition that may affect my own or somebody else’s ability to safely take part in the activity.
  • I have to be physically competent to complete the activity as described on the website.

I understand that it is my responsibility to ensure that:

  • I wear an appropriate, properly fitted buoyancy aid / Personal Flotation Device while on the water.
  • I carry an accessible whistle and rope cutting device.
  • My canoe or kayak is water-worthy and appropriate for the activity.
  • My canoe or kayak is fitted with sufficient flotation (air bags, blocks or sealed compartments) such that it will remain afloat and provide buoyancy for the crew even if fully swamped.
  • My canoe has securely attached painters stowed in such a way as to not create an entrapment hazard in the event of a capsize.
  • My Sea kayak should have adequate decklines securely attached to the decks.
  • I carry an appropriate bailer or pump; a sponge is also useful.
  • I carry a spare paddle per crew member in canoe or sea kayak or have at least one spare between the group if whitewater paddling.
  • I should carry an accessible towline or throwline (depending upon the activity) provided that you are trained to use it.
  • I wear clothing appropriate to conditions on the day and have extra layers stored in dry bags, barrel or similar available in case of immersion or change of conditions.
  • I have access to additional items – hat, gloves, sun glasses, lip salve, sunscreen, etc., as required.
  • I carry sufficient food and (hot?) drinks or means of making hot drinks as required plus emergency rations for use in the event of an unexpected delay, etc.
