Uni boat sheds West Beach
Meet At: Boat Shed
Cost: $5 approx
This is a fairly easy coastal sea kayak trip. More details closer to the time. However, you MUST have done basic skills with AUMC or be an experienced kayaker, able to do a capsize and rescue in moving water. Please DO NOT book unless this is true, as your booking will not be accepted for safety reasons.
We will meet at the West Beach Boat Shed at 9am, and should be back there by about 4pm. If you have to catch a bus the J1H leaves stop V2 on Currie St south side at 8.10am, arriving stop 14 Tapleys Hill Rd east side at 8.41am, then just walk through to the boatsheds. Cost will be < $3,- for petrol money. Please let me know when you register whether you have a car and can take passengers from the boat shed, or if you need transport. Bring your lunch in a waterproof bag (2 ziplock bags is best) and some snacks and a water bottle, as you get hungry kayaking and there are no shops along the way. Bring a camera or phone, but only if you have something waterproof to keep it in. Also useful: towel and change of clothes for afterwards and money for lunch or shops at Glenelg. There are toilets but no showers. You will need to wear suitable boating clothes. This includes old sandshoes or boat shoes which can get wet - no thongs or crocks, and leave the socks home. A longsleeved shirt (synthetic) to shed water and protect from sunburn is good, also comfortable shorts or trackpants, shady hat, sunglasses if you like, and sunscreen. If you get cold a light spray jacket will keep the wind off, and a thermal top or fleece can also be good in cooler weather. AUMC will supply kayaks, paddles, spraydecks and some drybags for keeping your lunch in. You are required to wear a PFD - we supply these as well. This trip is for people who have been kayaking before.
If you have not paddled with AUMC before please do NOT register for this event, This is an intermediate level event. If you are a beginner there are separate basic skills days – please book for one of those first.
