West Lakes Canoe Club is running regular Come and Try sessions on Saturday mornings from 8:45am to 9:45am (arrive at 8:30am) in canoes, kayaks, and SUPs. These sessions will resume Saturday the 9th of January 2021.

You need to register online and let us know you’re coming (email westlakes@paddle.org.au) so we have the right number of volunteers, and expertise to help you on the water.

Time: Arrive at 8:30am for an 8:45am start
Ages: Everyone aged 10 and up (U14’s and non-swimmers must wear a PFD – available at the club)
Cost: $30 (see below for registration and payment information)

Register on the GoMembership database at https://paddleaustralia.azolve.com.  Once you have registered you’ll need to link to West Lakes Canoe Club – either change to “list view” or enlarge the map so you can see the geo-pin clearly.  You can now join up under the Come and Try Membership.

The Come and Try Membership Cost is $30.  Under Paddle Australia terms this allows you to try paddling for 4 weeks.  * Please note the insurance component of the Come and Try membership is being covered by Paddle Australia for these sessions, so this saving has been passed on to you.
