Paddling is any aquatic sport in a craft propelled by a person or people with paddles!
This includes but is not limited to Rafts, Canoes and Kayaks.

Canoeing Guidelines can be found in Appendix 3 of Scouting Ireland Boating Guidelines which are presented here for convenience. It is especially important in paddling to consider how easy it is for members of the group to become separated and to have a plan in place to keep the group together.
