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 […]

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) […]

Kentish Sea Paddling the Return

Saturday 13th August 2011

Chelsea Flare – safety with style

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

We all ‘Go Canoeing’ for a day

To help celebrate the British Canoe Union being in its 75th year, the Club teamed up with Kayaking London and Friends of Cremorne Riverside to host an open day during ‘Go Canoeing Week’ on Sunday 8 May. 

 

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

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 […]
