Thames Festival – A Paddling Party

Chelsea Kayak Club got into a celebratory mood this Saturday for the The Mayor’s Thames Festival when we took part in a massive parade of boats down the river, amid cheers from the crowded banks and bridges.

Norfolk Wild Canoe Camping

5 – 7th August 2011

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 […]

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 […]
