Hi Everyone,

Fancy getting out on the water this weekend?

If you would like to try kayaking, then come and join us on Sunday at West Beach. You will learn basic skills like paddling forwards and backwards, turning, stopping,  support strokes, capsizes and simple rescues. These skills are essential if you want to use the AUMC kayaks in the future.

As this day is skills based you will get wet, so bring a towel and change of clothes. The club will supply kayaks, paddles and spraydecks, PFDs, and any other equipment required. You will need to bring your lunch and suitable clothing, which includes bathers, shorts or leggings (not jeans), a long sleeved synthetic top or rashie, thermal top if you get cold, old sandshoes or boatshoes, sunscreen, hat, water bottle, snacks and maybe your camera in a waterproof bag. Cotton t-shirts are not suitable as they become heavy and cold when wet, also thongs, crocs or sandals are not recommended.

We will meet at the Uni boat sheds, Foreman St West Beach and pack up the trailer, then head down to the launch point together. You can also meet at the Cloisters at 8.30am if you need transport. Please notify this in your registration, and also let me know if you have a car, and can transport people to West Beach


This event is fully booked.
