Social Paddle – with a Buddy

Saturday 1 December 2018 at 10.30 am (meet at INCC)


The club is planning to hold a number of “Paddle with a Buddy” sessions for new paddlers wanting to start active recreational paddling, or former paddlers wanting to get back into paddling in a relaxed way.

These sessions will be ideal for those who

  • have completed our beginner course, or club members who don’t have the confidence to paddle on their own,
  • who want to connect with other paddlers of similar ability to build up skills together, or
  • who just want to make friends to paddle with socially, on a regular basis.

The minimum requirement is that you have already completed a beginner course or can otherwise paddle. Depending on ability levels and interest, we plan to paddle downstream to about Bellbird Landing (less than 5 km round trip), or shorter distances depending on fitness and preferences.  Experienced club members will paddle along with the group, to be on hand to assist if needed.


Afterwards, we would have tea and toast at the club together, or a coffee a Fairfield Boathouse.

There is no cost associated with doing these paddles, but to ensure we have a suitable number of experienced paddlers with you, please notify us that you intend to come along.  If you are a current club member, please just email us at


If you are a previous INCC club member, or a past INCC beginner course participant wishing to join in, please register your interest by following this link to Register Now where some additional information will be required.


The first session will be 1 December 2018. Meet at the club at 10.30 am to get changed and gear organized, before heading down to the river(within 20 minutes).


Remember to bring the usual personal gear – towel, soft water shoes, lanyard for glasses, change of clothes, money for coffee.  All other equipment will be provided (eg. kayak, paddle, pfd) if you do not have your own.


We will schedule a second Paddle with a Buddy later in January 2019, so stay tuned.


We look forward to paddling with you and helping you to make social connections within the club.


An email will be sent out shortly, but in the meantime, feel free to spread the word, as not all members use facebook.
