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.

    Aspiring Grade 2 paddlers (and anyone wanting to work on their boat control skills)

    Through the acquisition of skills become a more confident sea kayaker and broaden your paddling horizons to discover just how your little boat can enrich your life in so many different ways.

    Two half-day training sessions conducted over consecutive Saturdays on Sydney Harbour. The first session will be Saturday 6 July.

    Put-in for both sessions will be Little Sirius Cove, Mosman.

    Session One, conducted on gently moving waters, will concentrate on developing efficient and injury-free paddling skills for sea kayaking and will cover the important part played in them through an effective union between your body, your boat and your (paddle) blade.

    Session Two will be a trip where we apply and refine what we learnt in Session One and  introduce towing  techniques. We will endeavour to conduct this session in more active water.

    By the end the second session participants should be able to demonstrate sufficient  skill to satisfy the Club’s Grade 2 provisional benchmarks related to paddling speed, boat control and towing.

    Participants will be required to present kayaks and kit to the Club’s Grade 2 standards.

    Adrian Clayton will lead the sessions but will be assisted by an instructor and/or a trainee sea instructor.

    Any queries regarding these training sessions should be emailed to Adrian at adriancl8on[at]gmail.com.

    This year the AGM returns to beautiful Patonga Beach with a myriad of options for open and enclosed sea paddling.  This is a great opportunity to catch up with old friends or make new paddling partners to take you through the summer paddling season.

    The AGM itself will be held at 4:00 pm in Patonga Community Hall where dinner will be served post meeting.  

    We hope to have a variety of paddle trips, both instructional and touring on the schedule and, if you are tired of paddling there is plenty of bush-walking and other sight seeing opportunities nearby.

    Accommodation is LIMITED so book early.  Patonga Beach Campground has only a few sites remaining but nearby Ocean Beach Resort at Umina has camp sites available. There are also AirBnB options. To facilitate accommodation arrangements, we have a forum available here.
