Redd Up Saturday 26th April

Hi everybody, to get the kayak season started we thought we could start with participating in the redd Up on Saturday the 26th April, to clean the Atlantic side of Mavis Grind. We are meeting at 10 am at Mavis Grind. I thought we would Redd Up first and then those who want to can go on a trip near by either heading north to Nibon/ Hillswick or south to Roe Sound (I’m hoping for nice weather).

Hope to see you all there!


Beginners sessions 2014

Starts Thurs 17th April, 24th April, 1st May, 8th May

If you’ve never kayaked and thought you’d like to give it a go, this is a good way to learn some of the basics before you get out onto the sea.

Each week we’ll spend just under an hour looking at safety, equipment and general paddling do’s and don’ts before heading into the pool. At the end of the four weeks you’ll be ready to head out to Bridge End to put some of what we’ve been doing into practice before getting going with trips.

You need to be able to swim and be over 13, all children under 16 need to be accompanied by an adult.

Meet 6:45pm at poolside suite for the dry bit. There will be time to get changed before we go into the pool. Please bring your completed enrollment form with you.
