London Kayakathon 2012

Yesterday, three intrepid CKC members put themselves up for the endurance paddle of 26.2 miles in the London Kayakathon 2012 for charity; Ann Gales, David McCormick and John Mayne.

This year there were just under a hundred sea kayaks that took part in the charity event – mustering at Tower Hamlets, then paddling from under […]

CKC buys a canoe …. sssshhhhh…..

Ok so we are mostly a kayak club.  Chelsea Kayak Club.  And we are mostly a sea kayak club.  Chelsea Kayak Club. Does what it says on the tin, innit.

But we do say we are London’s only paddlesport club devoted to sea kayaking and touring. And of course touring is rather nice in an open canoe.  […]

Wat’er Way to Learn

13 October 2011

Last night Chelsea Kayak Club held its second water skills session at Brockwell Lido and, despite the cold water and diminishing sunlight, was a huge success.

Geoff was kind enough to not only organise these two-hour pool sessions, but to also load up the CKC trailer and bring the […]

My adventure began on Thursday 6th October and I still get a strong heartbeat every time I see a photo of Old Harry – I definitely must see him again – soon!

The annual Thames Festival celebrates everything special about this great waterway, but this year something […]

Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant Rehearsal

Chelsea Kayak Club was proud to be involved in one of the rehearsals for The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant, taking place next year, when around 1000 boats are expected to make their way down the Thames, to celebrate sixty years since the coronation of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

The Diamond Jubilee celebrations are […]

Pimp My CKC Trailer

Keen to make the most of our fleet of nine sea kayaks – and always conscious of the environment – we wanted to start reducing the number of cars going on long-haul club trips and expeditions.  The simplest way to achieve this was to invest in our very own boat-trailer. Eyes were peeled for the […]

Getting arty for the Royal Wedding

Jacks of all trades – getting ready for a Royal Wedding Paddle

Groovy-baby! With the help of Katie W and Richard H, I was able to turn our two Atlantic’s into a couple of floating Union Jack’s that would make Austin Powers weep with envy. These boats have been made to resemble our […]
