Club Elements 

  • The key element of the club is the Friday morning paddle. This typically involves a paddle for about an hour away from the starting point followed by a break, often with access to a coffee shop, and then a return to the starting point where a picnic lunch is enjoyed by the group.

  • Paddlers form into two or three groups, based on ability. The fastest group would normally paddle between 12 and 15 kilometres in total. The second group would paddle between 7 and 12 kilometres. The third group would paddle a shorter distance. Each week the club gathers at a different starting point, alternating with north or south of the river starts.

  •  There are also annual camps

    • Weekend Camps at Mandurah  and Moore River

    • A week at Rottnest  in autumn and at  Kalgan River (Albany), Walpole or Augusta by rotation in spring

  • Additionally on a number of occasions the club agenda has included overseas trips. These have included New Zealand, Europe and Fiji. 

  • There is no competitive element to the paddles.

  • The club emphasis is on enjoyable, social paddling while remaining safe in sometimes challenging conditions.

  • The club does not offer formal training but practices safety and rescue techniques.
