Swan Canoe Club is one of the oldest canoe and kayak clubs in Australia, starting in 1966 and moving to Mosman Park in about 1970. We have an active membership base of around 350 members who enjoy our wonderful location of protected flat waters on the Swan River for recreational paddling or competitive training. Members can choose to participate in flat water and white water paddling, sea kayaking, slalom, multi distance time trials and various social activities.
With the Department of Health amendment of the Preventative Restrictions of Activities Direction and issue of the Prohibitive Gatherings Direction it is now possible to paddle in groups of up to 2 people whilst maintaining social distancing of 1.5 metres. Households may also continue to paddle together.
Please ensure that social distancing is practised within the boat shed, and by moving on from the shed after you have finished paddling, as well as during your paddles. There has been some speculation that paddlers and general water craft will be watched closely over the coming weeks by police enforcing social distancing. Please take care and do the right thing to enable us to continue paddling over the coming months.
