Social paddle on the Swan then bbq !!


We’re planning another social paddle, on the 9th of July. This time we’ll meet at the bottom of Katanning Road in Bayswater at 0900. There’s barbeques here, so we’ll get on the water about 9.30am, paddle approx 3kmup the river, enjoying the parkland we paddle through, and look at the riverside mansions …. well maybe not mansions, it’s not Peppy Grove or Mosman Park, but there’s still some houses I wouldn’t knock back ! We’ll stop for a brief toilet pause/snack/stretch, then head back down the river for a barbie or picnic. BYO whatever you fancy, or there will be some snags & rolls for a gold coin donation.


All boats are fine for this trip, it’s on flat water although there will be some passing boat traffic so you should be comnfortable in swell such as the Point Walter paddle with the Rotto ferry going past. You must be wearing footwear, and PFDs are strongly recommended. Bring a dry thermal and warm clothes, sunnies, sunscreen, hat. Depending on the weather, a windproof may be a good idea. You should have completed an Intro to Kayaking course or similar, or be a known paddler.


Please, register with me prior to the event so I have an idea of numbers attending, an email is ideal with the boat you’ll be paddling, car rego and contact details. Contact details, or 0403 502 584.
