CURRENT EVENTS

These are paddles offered mostly on Weekends and Public Holidays by Club Trip Leaders. You will need to register to take part.  Registration of interest does not guarantee a place on the paddle.  The leader has the discretion to select paddlers to suit conditions and the trip plan. Non-members can join here.

    Come along and join in a social paddle for all grades from Patonga. 

    The plan, weather permitting will be a circuit within Broken Bay and the outer Hawkesbury, including a stop for morning tea (bring appropriate snacks).  I would like to throw in some gentle skills practice en route - depending on the interest of the group.

    Please note that while numbers are limited, should additional leaders be available, the total limit will be raised so join the waitlist and I will know you are interested.

    Your trip leader will be Campbell Tiley

The event is suitable for beginners and we should be paddling about 9km in fairly protected waters. The event will be weather dependent. We will be on the water by 10.30 AM.

    A day spent on some core skills required for Sea Kayaking.

    Time:  Be ready to launch by 8:30am, so you will need to arrive a little earlier.  Expect to finish around 3pm. 

    There will be a few off water breaks for morning tea and lunch.

    We will look at skills needed to wet exit, move the kayak around and rescues.  

    You will get wet, more than once.

    Suitable for those who have not had much training, especially those who are new to the club.  Preference may be given to newer members who have not had the chance to have had the chance to practice and demonstrate grade 1 and 2 skills.

    The location will be in the Sutherland Shire.  Exact location will be determined closer to the event when the forecast is more certain.

    Bring your sea kayak and kit to at least grade 2 if you can.  If you do not have a tow rope the instructor will bring a couple of extras to lend out.  A neck tube is recommended to reduce the risk of virus transmission.

    Contact Megan if you have any questions.

    Sunday morning training paddle. The plan is to practice existing assisted rescue skills in open sea conditions conditions while regaining paddling fitness.  Return paddling distance is 15km to the Sea Cliff Bridge.

    Be ready to launch by 8:30am.   Thus you will need to arrive earlier.   Expect to finish by 1pm. 

    "Plan A" meeting location is:  The boat ramp north of the Headlands Hotel or Brickyard Point, Austinmer, NSW.  You can set up navigation to Pinecourt Park, 1B Headland Ave, Austinmer NSW.  https://goo.gl/maps/eFxabSiW5hDa8CmJ6 

    If approaching from the north along Lawrence Hargrave Drive, after the BP Service Station on the right, turn left at Headlands Ave , then turn left towards the beach.

    There is a brick toilet block, tap and a sandy boat ramp.

    Registrants will be updated about the expected forecast closer to the event to assist in evaluation of trip suitability or possible event changes.

    You will need snacks and drinking water accessible when paddling and obviously come prepared to be very wet.  Sea kayak kit and safety gear to a minimum of grade 2 standards, ideally grade 3.  Trip should be suitable for keen grade 2s.

    Contact Megan if you have any questions.

    The plan is for a regular social paddle on the second Sunday of each month. The general aim is to finalise the details depending on the preferences of the paddlers registered and conditions.  Potential destinations include around Broken Bay (Hawkesbury river), Terrigal, Norah Head, the sea caves near Swansea and various beaches along the Central Coast with some skills training and practice from time to time. 

    Message me (Marty VanderPoel) through the website for further information or simply register and come along. 

    Launch details will be emailed out to the paddlers closer to the day.
