  15. A Paddle Boarder member may paddle on the days and at the times shown in the attached Schedule and at other such times as are subject to agreement with the Sailing Secretary. Any paddle boarding outside the initially agreed programme for PB will first be discussed by, and require the approval of, the Sailing Committee. Paddleboarders must keep clear of other lake users at times of shared occupancy of the Lake.
