    About the Trip:  This is primarily aimed at those who aspire to do long distance paddling trips and races such as The Hawkesbury Classic along with paddlers that enjoy getting fit in a fun and social group. We’ll paddle 30 to 40 km with a generous coffee stop at either Manly or Shelly Beach. With such a lot going on in The Harbour this trip is always engaging and is a great way to stay paddle fit.

    • Sydney Harbour

    About the Trip: Established in 2010 with a focus on keeping kayaking fun, the Saturday group launches from the eastern side of Sydney Harbour or the foreshore of Botany Bay, and occasionally further afield. 

    The paddle combines socialising, keeping fit, building skills in a safe and supportive environment, and enjoying each other's company as well as the natural beauty of Sydney's Harbours and coastline. 

    The exact mix of what we do and where we go depends on the weather and conditions on the day and the skill level of the group. 

    The length of the trip is around 15 kilometres with a stop for morning tea usually close to a cafe. We are finished by lunch time, but often some members of the group remain on the water to learn new skills and refine old ones. For those who like to stay on later, we often go for lunch at a nearby eatery, or sometimes have a picnic in the park.

    (If you haven't been signed off for your Grade 1 "wet exit" and "swim", let me know and I can organise this.)

    About the Trip: The Friday Group is well established, having started in Jan 2009.  Please note that it was also known for some time as "oandora". It meets weekly at a Sydney Northside venue at 9am for 9.30am start. Finish time may vary to suit conditions and participants on the day, but we are often back at around 1.15pm / 1.45pm. It is not unusual, particularly in nice weather, for the keener folk to hang around for skills/ rolling practice.  

    Paddling distance varies but is generally in the region of 15km to 20 km, vith a coffee break.

     We may also have periodic "extra" paddles (maybe of longer distance),  at other times of the week / weekend.

    Usual venues are Clontarf, Little Manly (out the Heads and around to Shelley Beach is usually good) and Freshwater (smallish surf). Other venues (generally for "extras") may include:- Fishermans Beach Collaroy, Basin Beach Mona Vale, Palm Beach, Umina.

    Although most outings are destination based, we do have an emphasis on skills development and enjoyment.

    Your Trip Leader is Owen Kimberley. Please e-mail Owen to join to this group at okimberley (at) bigpond.com   Please replace "(at)"  with "@" when you are e-mailing.
