Reminder for Kayakers & Surfskiers:
Informal paddle, Saturday 7 April at 10am on the water

The 'First Saturday of every month' paddle happens at 10am on the water at the slipway closest to the kayak racks.
  • This is very informal, a chance to ask questions, get more familiar with your kayak or surf ski and paddle with a group if you are not able to get on the water too frequently.
  • You must be a member of FBYC, must have your own kayak, a life jacket and preferably have a safe place to keep your cell phone.
