  • IRCG do not provide safety cover for any event. event organisers must do that. we normally don’t have a problem with being on the water during an event but we musn’t be used to lessen in any way the event organisers responsibility to provide a safety plan and appropriate safety cover. If a difficulty arises it is their responsibility and we will step in in the event of that needing support.
