Our big news is that 2017 was the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the club.

To reach this milestone is a great achievement & the present committee would like to acknowledge the work of previous committees, our trip leaders & the ongoing support of our members who support our regular paddles & trips away.

In January 2017 kayak adventurer & ecowarrior Steve Posselt set off from Ballina on the last leg of his epic Connecting Climate Chaos journey that has taken him around the world raising awareness of climate change. A retired engineer, Steve is a former resident of Port Macquarie. His campaign commenced in the Gulf of Mexico & took him to New Orleans & Chicago before he headed to Canada, England & France for the COP – 21 Climate Summit in Paris in November, 2015.

While in Port, several of our members joined Steve on the water & attended his talk & slide presentation which showed highlights of his journey. We also signed his Climate Emergency Declaration & Mobilisation petition which will be presented to Parliament in Canberra in late February.
