We are having weekly kayaking fun paddles each Thursday afternoon. We start from the Club beach at 17:00 and paddle to Shatti Beach and back which takes around 1 hour. We have a regular group of around 5-6 paddlers each week and another 5-6 paddlers who come on an ad hoc basis ranging from beginners to advanced paddlers. Participants either own their own kayak or use the club kayaks, which are available. The pace generally reflects the boats and skills of the people who come along. Surf skis are a growing part of the kayaking groups with 5 new additions in the last couple of months. The number of sea kayaks and longer sit on tops are also increasing.
Regular Saturday morning paddles from the club beach to Costa and back are also popular with 2-6 participants normally attending. We head off from the beach at 07:30 on Saturday morning and arrive at Costa Coffee at Shatti Beach in time for a morning coffee and breakfast. This paddle requires the longer kayaks and reasonable fitness.
We currently have 64 Privately owned kayaks in the storage area of the club (55 of which have been registered with the private kayak section) plus 3 club kayaks. We are also trying to locate the owners of the kayaks that have not been registered (e-mail David Alsop (firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>) for registration. All of the kayaks without owners identified will be removed from the storage racks in June.
