Building toward your Grade 3 assessment? Wanting to get to a point where your skills will support you on longer journeys and in varied conditions?
This is a two-day session to go through most of the skills you will need to get there. Safe and efficient technique for all is the goal.
Also, this is good opportunity to meet and socialise with other club paddlers, and test some of your camping gear.
Camping will be in RNP Bonnie Vale, right next to the water. 3 unpowered tent sites have been pre-booked.
The sites all take at least 2 smallish tents (1-2 man/woman); cost is $14-20 per head depending on numbers.
Please email the organiser upon registering if you intend to make use of a prebooked site.
Note if you book late, you may have to take your chances with other available sites.
Dinner will be a communal cookup in the camping area, so bring your cooking gear and favourite ingredients, and be prepared to share..
In case of really bad weather, the Bundeena RSL is an option (15min walk).
Bring all your paddling gear, hopefully to Grade 3 standard (see club documents on website), including tow ropes, helmets, spare paddles, hand pumps, etc
Kayaks must be to club standard, with bulkheads fitteed. Footwear is strongly recommended, no barefoot paddling please. Appropriate clothing for the water is required, no cotton etc.
All sunnies and eyewear should have straps and floats to avoid loss of gear. Same applies to cameras etc gear.
Please do not book to attend if you are not fully committed on being there for this weekend. Two dayers get preference - you can indicate your interest
via email if you only want to do one day.
