At lunchtime today a father and daughter team set off from the Club beach heading home to Luing. They approached us yesterday asking permission to set off from our beach.

Doug & Ione Hardie are experienced kayakers and had a support team meeting them at various points along the way. Their intention is to paddle through the canal, portaging at each lock. They expect to be back on Luing tomorrow.

The Easterly this morning made launching interesting, but hopefully it will assist them on their way towards Toward.

Doug is going to let us know how they get on

The Club is hosting a rowing regatta on Saturday 29th July. If you could spare some time to help with greeting visiting clubs, moving boats, beach marshalling or serving in the cafe then please email Karen on

Look forward to a busy day on and off the water, as well as quiz and disco at night.
