Over the Easter weekend a Mirage 580 was stolen from the North Sydney Council boat shed at the bottom of Willoughby Street Kirribilli. It is white other than a small portion of the front deck which has the gel coat finished in a blue and green panel, which is unusual. If anyone sees a kayak of this description can you please contact David on david (at) accessoryworld.com.au
This event is being hosted by Paddle Capricornia Inc and the Qld Sea Kayak Club. We have a great line up of Instructors & presenters who have offered to attend this year’s event and share their knowledge and experience with us. These include Dave “Crocodile Winky” Winkworth, Rob Mercer, Eddie Safarik, Les Allen, Gary Forrest and others.
The event is limited this year to 50 participants as this will assist with management of the group and due to the fact that the facilities & catering on North Keppel Island are geared for this number of persons. The base for the event is on North Keppel Island Environmental Education Centre which is approx. 15 klm off the mainland from the township of Yeppoon.
On offer is a package which includes all meals and accommodation for the duration of the Symposium at a cost is $350 p/person.

The Rock n Roll weekend was a great success once again and reflects the inclusive and friendly nature of our club. The roughly half of our membership who made it to Batemans Bay know how well it went off and how well the weather turned out despite the early forecast. It was great to welcome some 30 interstate paddlers to the event. For the other half of our club who could not make it – think about next year.
Thanks to David, Nerissa, Selim, the tripleaders, the instructors and the volunteers for Beachmaster, Registration and other tasks that made the event work. Thanks also to Fernando for coordinating the training sessions which were very well received. And finally, thanks to our sponsors: Expedition Kayaks, Helinox and Davlin Wealth Management. Please pass on your thanks directly if you are in touch with them.
The Pogie Awards had an impressive start with first class submissions from Fer, Selim, Mark and last years winner Vincent who submitted two awards. View them here:

You can now view the Basic Skills online resource on this website, following the official launch at the hugely successful Rock N Roll weekend. This resource has been written by the Club instructors and members and draws on years of experience in coaching new kayakers in the Basic Skills.
You can access the resource by clicking on the Basic Skills link from the left-hand menu on the Club pages. The content includes wet exits, rescues and kayak strokes at the Basic Skills (Grade 2) level.
This online resource has been made possible by a grant from the Department of Sport and Recreation, which assisted professional video production. The Club instructors and members have contributed their time as content writers, demonstrators and reviewers on a voluntary basis.
This resource has been made available to the general public to reflect the Club’s training role and encourage sea kayaking. We hope that you will use the resource to learn, refresh, train and review your skills whatever your level.
