KAYAKING, PADDLING & ROWING

Are you letting your kayak or surfski rot away on the racks at FBYC?

Sell it now!!!

Kayaking Try
On Sunday 10 June at 11am, the club's famous 'Yacht Grot Sale' takes place and it is a great opportunity for you to
get rid of your kayak that has been standing in the FBYC racks for years. You may not recognise it by now, because
it is no doubt covered in grime, soot and pigeon poop…

FBYC will no longer allow members to use the kayak racks as their own personal storage space because of the
waiting list for kayak racks at present - by people who want to get out on the water.

From July 2018, the start of the club's new financial year, it must be recorded at the front gate that your kayak or surf ski is used at least 8 times a year or your craft will be removed from the racks.

We currently have a waiting list of people wanting to join the club and paddle but cannot because of the number of racks filled by craft that never get used.

Please take advantage of the club's 'Yacht Grot Sale' to sell your kayak and let's give keen paddlers a chance to use
their kayaks from FBYC!

'First Saturday of the Month' paddle for Kayakers - 02 Jun, 10am on the water!

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.

SAILING

ORC ratings are available free of charge till the end of June. For further info please contact Andrew MacKenzie on 083 339 3384.
