Summer Kayak Trips in the Sea

This Wednesday’s canoeing is cancelled due to strong offshore winds.  Hopefully next Wednesday will be better. Here is a reminder of directions to the club lock-up and advice on what to bring:

Girvan Canoe Club’s Summer Sea Kayaking

On Wednesday evenings during the summer we meet at the Club’s canoe store at School Vennel, Maybole (just off Greenside, across from the station) at 19:00 prompt to paddle on the sea.  Paddling depends on weather conditions; in bad weather or off-shore winds we will not be going on the sea.  When there is surf running there may be good sport for more experienced paddlers but it is possible that less experienced paddlers will not be able to go out.

Paddlers should bring suitable clothing to wear in a kayak: – You will get wet!  This includes swimming costume, wetsuit or drysuit if possible, otherwise light-weight trousers, T-shirt, old wool pullover.  Wetsuit boots or neoprene boots are ideal, otherwise light weight gym shoes or sandals that can get wet.  The club has equipment such as spray-decks, crash helmets, buoyancy aids, cagoules, etc.

Don’t forget a towel and dry clothing to change into at the end.  A drink and snack is always good to have too.
