Canoeing is a wonderful activity, as all our members would attest to. Not only are you introduced to places you never knew existed, but you also get to enjoy paddling with like minded people in the safety of a group in a variety of beautiful locations. You can also access a wealth of knowledge and advice on many aspects of canoeing from very experienced paddlers within our club and try a variety of craft and paddles before making an informed decision on what to purchase.
On the social side, many new friendships can be made through paddling as there are plenty of opportunities to talk to fellow paddlers at morning tea and lunch stops, and at afternoon tea, often around a campfire. We also organise weekends away camping and canoeing up and down the coast.
Members also enjoy social outings from time to time and the Club’s Christmas party is held in conjunction with the Annual General Meeting in early December.
This year we helped vice president Brian celebrate his 80th birthday with a paddle on the tranquil Lake Cathie followed by a picnic lunch.
