White water rafting expeditions are some of the most adrenaline-fuelled adventures you will ever embark on. While accidents do occur, such as slips, trips and falls, by preparing sufficiently for white water rafting excursions, you can greatly minimise the risk of sustaining sport-related injuries and illnesses.
What do you need to take when white water rafting?
When considering what to pack for white water rafting, consider the nature of the sport and the conditions you will experience.
Everyone does take different items when they go away, however, there are some common suggestions that everyone should throw into the bag before embarking on a white water rafting adventure.
Five of the most important things to pack for white water rafting include:
- Swimming gear, such as a quick dry swimming costume or swim shorts
- A dry set of clothes for after your white water rafting experience
- A gym bag or plastic bag for your wet clothing
- Sturdy, substantial footwear
- Sunscreen or wind/rain proof clothing, depending on weather conditions
Claiming compensation for white water rafting accidents
If you have been injured in a white water rafting accident through no fault of your own, and you believe that a third-party is to blame, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation.
Did you suffer a fall due to poorly maintained equipment? Perhaps you tripped over stray items left lying around by the excursion company?
