Beginners Trip

Sunday 30 January.  Leader is Ian

This trip is suitable for all levels of experience, including those who have just completed their Kayak Skills Course.  It is short and easy, and at a leisurely pace, and it's a great way for new paddlers to get some fitness and experience while under the care of our leaders and club members. 

Meet at Sullivan's Bay (Otarawao Bay on Google Earth).  Meet at 10am with 10.30 on the water.  Off water probably around 3pm.

Trip destination: Possibly just Big Bay but maybe as far as Martins Bay depending on participants' capabilities.  We may also just stay in Maharangi Harbour if the weather dictates. The decision will be made on the day.  If we have additional leaders we can split into two groups to allow for a longer and shorter paddle. 

Getting there: head north on the motorway, 5km past the tunnel there is a sign to Mahurangi West, turn right and travel for a few km.  The road then bends to the left and there is a road which branches off to the right.  Take the road to the right and follow it to the beach.  

You need to bring clothing suitable for paddling in, lunch, water, any personal medication, sun screen.

Hire kayaks are available but it is your responsibility to make arrangements to pick up and drop off from Canoe and Kayak Auckland or North Shore, and you will need to transport it yourself.

For your first trip with the club, you do not need to be a Yakity Yak Kayak Club member, but you must have completed your Kayak Skills Course with Canoe and Kayak.  Come along and try us out. You have a whole bunch of new friends that you just haven't met yet.
