In November, 2022 we will celebrate the 15th anniversary of the establishment of the Port Macquarie Hastings Canoe Club Inc.
While COVID-19 resulted in restrictions on club group activities over the past two years, we are back on the water paddling regularly as a group.
We offer scheduled paddles on three days of the week. These have fast and slower options.
On Saturday June 11 the club fielded 19 paddlers to support the Port Macquarie Maroro Outrigger Canoe Club’s fundraising paddle in aid of Riding for the Disabled at Wauchope.
Six members braved a cold start with a dawn car shuffle followed by a 7.15 am start on the water for a 32kms paddle from Log Wharf Reserve at Telegraph Point to the Westport Park boat ramp. Another seven members completed a 10 kms paddle from Fernbank Creek while a further six members completed a 5 kms paddle from McInherney Park.
The club made a $200 donation to Riding for the Disabled as well as $190 in entry fees and other donations on the day. Well done everyone & thanks for coming out in support of this worthwhile local cause.
A huge thank you to club members & supporters who made our fundraiser for Camp Quality on June 11 such a success. On the water, on the land or helping in the background, your involvement was much appreciated by Camp Quality staff.
We raised $4811.00 which is a fantastic effort. Thanks also to the two six member crews from the Port Macquarie Maroro Outrigger Canoe Club who participated.
