Free ‘come and try’ sessions

beginnerINCC will again host two free ‘come & try flatwater kayaking’ sessions this summer. The sessions will be conducted from the steps near Fairfield Boathouse on Saturday January 21 and Sunday February 19, between 2 and 4 pm.

‘Come & try’ sessions are suitable for people of all ages and levels of fitness and provide an opportunity for participants who have never paddled flatwater kayaks to experience paddling on the beautiful Yarra. Participants should be able to swim and be confident in water. Children must be accompanied by an responsible adult.

The session will be conducted by qualified flatwater kayaking coaches and all equipment, including personal floatation devices, is provided.

Wear shorts, t-shirt (merino or polypropylene if its a bit cold), hat, reef shoes if you have them, and sunscreen. Bring a towel and change of clothes as there is a good chance participants will enjoy a refreshing dip in the Yarra!

Club night & AGM on November 4

This year’s club night and AGM will be held on Friday, November 4 at 6 pm.

The club night is a great opportunity to meet other members and to celebrate the achievements of our best athletes. Dinner is free and drinks will be available at reasonable prices.

In addition to the short AGM formalities, there will be club awards, speakers and plenty of time to socialise.

The event will be held at the Edinburgh Gardens Community Room, which is adjacent to the old Fitzroy Football Club grandstand on Brunswick Street, North Fitzroy. If you are coming from the city, catch the number 11 tram from Collins Street and hop off at stop 20.
