Free ‘come and try’ sessions

October 14, 2016

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!
