Do you hire boats to the public?

No. Inter Club visitors with a contact in the club that is willing to vouch for you may paddle with us in a club boat and use the club change room, etc for $20 per session.

I’m really new to this and want to give it a go. Where do I start?

A ‘Come and Try’ session will give you basic skills and safety training.

Is racing compulsory for members?

Not at all. Racing is an important part of the club culture, but many members participate without racing.

Can I bring my own boat?

Yes. Our come and try session is open to people with their own boat and equipment, although the cost is the same.

Where do we meet for the come and try? What do we do?

We meet at the club where you will be allocated a club boat suitable for your use. All come and try members are required to assist transporting boats to the water (less than 2 min walk) and back to the club where participants are also required to wash, dry and return the boat to the storage rack. Ask the coach any questions you may have when your time is confirmed. Full instruction is given on the day.

What is the cost of membership?

Can I store my kayak on a rack at the club?

A limited number of kayak storage racks are available for active members at a cost of $100 per year. If successful, you will be assigned a rack.

I want to buy a Kayak / Surf Ski and need some advice.

If there is one thing club members know about, it is choosing the right boat. Ask around the club and you can learn a lot about the best boat for your ability and intentions. Some club members often have second hand or new boats for sale.

What about equipment, merch. and threads?

Club apparel and merchandise and equipment is available. Ask any committee member at the club and they will point you in the right direction.
