Serpentine Paddle
Sep 27 all-day

SERPENTINE  RIVER – MANDURAH  LAKES  PADDLE  – Scheduled Sunday 20th September 2020 – Postponed to Sunday 27th September 2020 due to bad weather

This interesting 20km paddle, starts in the Serpentine River near Karnup Road and goes south, downriver through Kerulup Pool and into the Mandurah Lakes. We weave through paperbark trees and into open water at Lake Amarillo, Guanarnup Pool and Yalbanberup Pool. At a minimum water level of 0.3m (Dog Hill Station on Serpentine) and with light winds, this paddle takes about 5 hours for the average paddler.

Usually we  stop for lunch and a leg stretch on a small island along the way.  We also need to do a car shuffle, so as to have vehicles waiting at the end of the paddle to return boats and paddlers back to the start and this can add another hour or so to the paddle time.

The trip includes wildlife such as stampeding cows, the odd kangaroo and fox and an occasional tiger snake at no extra cost.
If you’re interested and can happily paddle 20km while whistling a happy tune, then contact: Geoff Emery at gemry13@gmail.com or on 0403 604 082.

Coogee to SCC Sea Kayak Paddle
Oct 25 all-day

Sea Kayak Paddle from Coogee Marina to Swan Canoe Club

Sunday 25th October 2020

This paddle is suitable for members who have, as a minimum, basic sea kayaking skills.

You will need a suitable sit in sea kayak and all the necessary safety gear.

This is a joint paddle with Swan Canoe Club and the Sea Kayak Club WA. It will give both club members the opportunity to meet other club members who have a common interest in sea kayaking. Come along and meet club members that actually enjoy talking and hearing about sea kayaking.

Starting at Coogee Marina we will head north, passing the statue of CY O’Connor and then into Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour. After a quick look around, we will head to the Fremantle Port entrance and then back along the Swan River to SCC. Approx. 16km.

Members and partners of both clubs are invited to a BYO BBQ lunch at the club after the paddle.

As this is a one-way trip, it would be helpful if you can arrange to get dropped off at Coogee Marina and picked up at the club afterwards.

Colin Priest

Sea Kayaking Instructor

To book a place on this paddle please contact; Colin cag2@westnet.com.au
