8:00 am: Sunday Morning Paddle


The Sunday morning paddle sets off from the Okahu Bay boat ramp at 8am. The average time for the paddle is around 2 to 3 hours, and the distance is around 10km. This is a ‘keep fit, feel good’ kind of paddle.

The trip leader will plan a paddle that reflects the abilities of the group. If needed, he will run you through the basics of setting up, and getting in and out of the kayak.

This paddle is an excellent introduction to kayaking and the club, or just a nice way to have a gentle outing with other club members.

The Winter Series – land-based events

The Winter Series is a collection of club events held on the third Wednesday of the month during winter (usually May – September). It includes slide shows by members of great trips they have done (kayaking or other adventures); guest speakers on kayak-related topics and mid-winter socials. All members and their friends and family, and prospective members, are welcome.

It’s a great way of getting to know other members, share some knowledge or a good yarn, and find paddle-buddies for the future.

Check out the calendar and our Facebook page for topics and times.
