What do we do?
The club is the crossroads for members who participate in a wide range of paddle sports. Formal club activities include introductory sessions, group flat water tours, and a monthly 5km time trial. Smaller groups of members are active in sea kayaking, marathon racing, multi sport events, ultra distance events, flatwater touring, canoe touring and surfski racing. If it’s happening in the NSW area, we probably have somebody who’s involved in it.
Club activities centre around our clubrooms in Burnum Burnum Reserve, Woronora
Where can I get more information?
We have a website http:\\shirekayaking.info where we publish lots of information about club activities. There’s a Facebook page for Sutherland Shire Canoe Club, or you can email us on email@example.com.
Sutherland Shire Canoe Club
The club is open every Sunday throughout the year, for a social paddle. Members often arrive early for training, but the club opens to the public at 9am. All paddlers must be off the water by 11:30 and the Clubrooms (and most importantly the gate) are closed at noon. During the public sessions there is a rostered committee member available to assist with inquiries and get visitors started with basic instruction.
Once a month on Sunday, we hold a 5km handicap time trial over a course from the clubrooms to the footbridge at Prince Edward Park and back. Outside the regular Sundays at the clubrooms, smaller groups of members paddle almost every day of the week, all year round in Sydney’s mild climate.
Club sessions usually finish up with a cup of coffee and a biscuit while we wash down our boats.
