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.  […]

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 […]

What a lovely lot of kit I got

For all of you who didn’t make it down to the open day at Cremorne Riverside yesterday, where Desperate Measures (the canoe shop) had loads of kit for us to play with (and buy), you’ll probably want to click here to read up on what you missed.  But in a nut shell, there was lots and […]

After paddling over 80km from Marlow to Chelsea in two days the previous weekend I was looking forward to what was meant to be a relatively relaxed paddle along the River Bure in Norfolk in good company and good weather.  Well… we I guess two out of three ain’t bad […]

Use your Skeg!

With the Club’s fleet of sea kayaks fast approaching their first birthday the Scotland trip a few weeks ago presented an opportunity of giving them a bit of well earned TLC. 

With some people moaning that their skegs were not working, upon inspection it was immediately apparent that most of the skegs were not in […]

Chelsea Flare – safety with style

We had the rare opportunity to ignite some safety flares in a controlled environment, so that Chelsea Kayak Club members were able to see how they work – helping to avoid any confusion when the heat is on, in a real situation.

Warning and safety flares should be part of any sea […]

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 […]

Wild Coast Paddle

The Club along with many other clubs and individual paddlers took part in a joint RSPB /Canoe England  paddle around Wallasea Island in Essex on Sunday 15th May.  Wallasea Island is bound to the north by the River Crouch estuary, to the south east by the River Roach estuary, and to the west by […]

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