Point Water Paddle

Happens every Saturday morning, leaving the Club at about 9.30am for coffee etc at Walter’s Cafe, about a 20min paddle. Note that on any particular Saturday there might not be anyone there, then next week it might be 20 – very spontaneous. This is a Peer Paddle unless it is this:

Once a month a trained instructor leads the paddle to show newbies how to safely navigate this sometime hazardous stretch of water (caused by wreckless power boats!) – see the Calendar to register for one of these events.

Tuesday mornings: two sessions at 7.30 and 9.30 on the water (This is a Peer Paddle)

Started in late 2014 to bring together new members who would like to meet paddle buddies and go for a casual and easy paddle – maybe to Chidley Pt, Pt Walter and occasionally to Zephyr Cafe depending on the conditions and paddler skills. Call Marion on 0431 962 339 if interested.

Friday mornings at 8am in winter – 7.30 otherwise – on the water (This is a Peer Paddle)

As for the Tuesday paddle but normally now to Zephyr Cafe in East Fremantle depending on the conditions and paddler skills. Call Marion on 0431 962 339 if interested.

Paddle Bash – Friday evenings (This is a Peer Paddle)

It’s not about beating others, it’s about beating the clock and enjoying yourself and maybe having a few sherbets after the bash and reliving the race. So come live a little and enjoy the bash. Remember to carry a light in or on your boat so I have something to chase and it’s not the Police chasing you. For paddlers not doing the Avon you are welcome to join in at your own pace selecting your own distance against the clock.
Start time is 5.30 (note earlier start!) pm every Friday. Come down for a social race of 3, 6,12 or 18 km towards Fremantle most Friday evenings – competition is against yourself as you try to better your previous times – see the Calendar for details of what is on a particular day (and to check if the event is in recess). End of season prizes are awarded for the best improvers, kindly donated by Mainpeak.  More information from paddlebash@swancanoeclub.org.au

Club Night

A social event for new and old members! Held on Thursday every fortnight, the event kicks off at 5:30 pm on the water for a 6pm 3km time trial or gentle paddle to Chidley point and back. If you’re new and unsure of which craft to use, our qualified instructors will be on the ramp from 5:30pm to give advice. Afterwards, catch up with friends on our new balcony and enjoy a BYO BBQ. This years Club night cycle starts off on the 4th January. See the Calendar for details of the next one.

 

We also run many trips and training courses – see the other sections of the website.
