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 […]

VHF Marine Short Range Radio Course

Four CKC paddlers today picked up their ‘VHF Licence’ after a full-on day at the Timuna Sea training centre Canary Wharf, squawking “Mayday, Mayday, Mayday” in to a range of short range radios.  The course, endorsed by the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) is required for anyone who wishes to use a Digital Selective Calling (DSC) […]

Six of us from the Club (Jac, Toons, Miranda, Debs, Ann and I) attended the inaugural Isle of Wight Symposium which took place over August Bank Holiday weekend.  The Symposium, organised by Isle of Wight Sea Kayaking, was put on to to fill a bit of a gap […]

Always keen to support a good cause or learn about a paddling challenge, CKC was pleased to hear from the Shetland Bus team who are going to attempt the first ever sea kayak crossing of the North Sea, from Scotland to Norway, this month.

The guys; Patrick Winterton, Mick Berwick and […]

Lymington to Lepe

Saturday 21st May 2011

Five CKC kayakers (Miranda, Toons, Jacquelin, Phil and I) loaded up at Cremorne and headed off for Lymington on Saturday 21 May.  It was easy to find Richard B in the car park because he had left a kayak on his roof.  The weather forecast indicated that a weather system bringing […]

Green with envy!

Congratulations to Harry Whelan and Jeff Allen for completing their sea kayak circumnavigation of the Emerald Isle in record time. The pair, paddling Rockpool Taran sea kayaks, completed the 1000 mile trip around Ireland in only 25 days and according to their blog, Around Ireland 2011, it was “an amazing journey”.

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 […]
