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.

    Early Saturday morning start to get to the island. We'll set up tents then go for a paddle - likely to be west of the Harbour Bridge. Saturday night BBQ, refreshments and heaps of chat on the island. There are ample cooking and bathroom facilities.
    Sunday morning group cooked brekkie for those who like their bacon'n'eggs & coffee, healthy stuff for the others. Maybe a morning adventure (walk the island) then eventually return paddle to where we started.

    This paddle is for competent grade ones and above (registration is not a certain sign that you will be accepted on the trip). I expect the harbour to be busy and the water a little choppy. One outcome, besides having fun, will be improving camping and paddling skills and confidence, also great casual networking.
    More details to follow.

    Rock ’n’ Roll 2023

    Rock’n’Roll is the Club’s premier annual event. This extended weekend attracts club members (and a few other random sea kayakers) from near and far to participate in a full program of trips, training and social activities.

    Participants have the option of embracing the event full on or treating it as relaxed weekend to chill out with a leisurely paddle or two, catch up with mates and make new friends.

    Rock N Roll 2023 will be held on the beautiful south coast out of the NRMA Batemans Bay Holiday Resort from Friday 3 March to Monday 6 March, 2023. There are paddling locations to suit all levels from rock gardening to surfing, paddling into sea caves or up quiet rivers.

    Expedition Kayaks will be onsite with all the paddling gear you need and as hosts to the Friday night pizza social gathering. On Saturday evening, Carolyn will be catering a delicious dinner while Sarah Davis presents the story of her kayak descent of the full Nile River. Sunday night is Pogies night where talented club videographers present their short films from a range of kayaking locations, usually including some spectacular crashes – because, let’s be honest, we all love seeing a bit of kayak carnage.

    If you are new to Rock N Roll or the club, you should plan on attending Mark Fuller’s (our VP) catered breakfast on Saturday morning which will help you meet people and get the most out of the weekend. And, of course, kayaking! From Friday to Monday, there will be kayak trips planned to local destinations, as well as a range of educational/training opportunities.

    This event is run by volunteers who:

    ·    Manage the registration desk,

    ·    Run the beach marshalling, (Whole day marshals don’t pay R’n’R registration.)

    ·   Cook and serve the Saturday evening dinner

    Those interested in helping with these tasks, please call Derek on 0414 209 258.
