Kilchoan 2015: Planes, trains and automobiles. And a Frenchman in a van.

30 May – 6 June 2015: Kilchoan, Ardnamurchan

Not the title of a crappy sequel to the classic John Candy movie, but how a dozen CKC members got to this remote part of Scotland.

SATURDAY, 30 MAY 2015

Kilchoan is the most westerly village on the British mainland. It is so remote that you have […]

I must see Old Harry from Dorset again

7th – 9th October 2011

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!

It all started in Lot’s Road Pub that Thursday evening, when 10 enthusiastic sea kayak paddlers met in […]

Canoe & Kayak: Sea Kayaking Special

This month’s issue of Canoe & Kayak UK magazine is dedicated to sea kayaking, something close to the heart of all Chelsea Kayak Club members – and is jam packed to overflowing with features, trip suggestions and tips – so much so, there’s a 24 page mini-mag pull out.

A tasty offer: CKC teams up with Lucozade Sport

Always keen to help fuel interest in the great sport of kayaking – Chelsea Kayak Club is working with Lucozade to offer free taster sessions as part of its SPORT FREE60 campaign that launched this month.

People can try out any number of sports and activities for gratis, thanks to the isotonic […]

We all ‘Go Canoeing’ for a day

The day was a great success, lots of people rocked up to find out about […]

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 […]

Wind, Waves and Wee-needy Paddlers

Sunday 10th April 2011

Always up for an interesting paddle and to push our kayaking skills, we arranged for the club to head out to sea for a few miles in search of a wind farm, off the Kent coast at Herne Bay. We found it, along with the upper limits of our […]

Surf’s up dude

26th March 2011

On the 26th March we set off for the inaugural Chelsea/Battersea joint surfing trip.  Heading off to the Gower we were not expecting much action; Magic Seaweed was predicting almost no surf.  But it just goes to show, you’ve got to give it a go.  Our first day at Llangenith on the Gower […]

Some Like it Rough!

18th to 20th March 2011

We finally made it over to Pembrokeshire after what seemed like an impossible trip to organise.  Nobody could agree on dates before Christmas and once a date in January had been agreed could you believe it we had to postpone it because the weather was too rough!   Several […]
