The NSWSKC was established in 1989 by a group of enthusiastic paddlers to further the sport of Sea Kayaking in NSW.
The most important aspects of the Club are the organised trips, training sessions (day trips and weekend sessions are held with qualified leaders and instructors), social activities and the club magazine, Salt which is published 4 times per year.
Membership of the club puts you in touch with many other paddlers state-wide.
Events and club trips are advertised on our calendar. These trips include training and trips. In order to take part in club activities, you must be a member of the NSWSKC.
The membership year is from March to the end of February (to coincide with the annual event Rock'n'Roll).
Detailed membership costs are set out on the How to Join.
Should you require any additional information please contact a committee member.
The Club's aims and objectives are:
- to act through the club's magazine, website and social activities, as a contact point for members' paddling related activities.
- to promote, organize and conduct sea kayaking training programs and paddling opportunities for all skill levels.
- to foster safe ocean kayaking and inspire members to explore our ocean environment.
- to encourage respect for our environment and wild places and the practise of minimum impact camping.
- to represent sea kayakers generally in consultations with government departments at all levels.
Sea kayaking is by its nature dangerous. The sea does not suffer complacency kindly. Paddlers should aim to minimise their own risk, and the risk they expose others to.
Paddlers should be aware that paddling on the ocean is generally more physically demanding than on sheltered waters, and that a reasonable fitness level may be required for even moderate distances. The formal Paddler Grade qualification that you have achieved at a point in time does not necessarily mean that you are able to paddle at that level today. Being unfit, or out of practice, may reduce your ability to safely take part in a proposed trip. You must be candid with the trip leader when discussing your participation in a trip. If you have any doubts about your fitness or ability to paddle at the expected level, you must fully disclose all of your concerns. If asked, you must be ready and willing to demonstrate your skills.
