If you want to go kayaking but don’t have too many clues about which boat or paddle is best for you, are unsure of the ‘Rules of the Sea’ or how to interpret weather maps and forecasts? And would like someone to give you a bit of instruction on the water?
Then, the FREE workshop on Saturday 10th October held at Coastguard Northshore on Beachfront Lane, Browns Bay, Auckland 0630 from 9am – 4pm could be a good place to start.

The morning will be interactive sessions and include a chance to look at personal and group gear such as VHF radios and Personal Locator Beacons and the chance to discuss what to do in an emergency. The afternoon will deal with planning and going on a short paddle with a skills clinic.

Bring your lunch, boat and paddling kit. If you have a query or are new or from out of town and don’t have any gear contact Shaun Maclaren on 021 2867412 or shaun@kask.co.nz and he’ll endeavour to help you out with equipment to try.

This is a Kiwi Association of Sea Kayaking (KASK) initiative supported by Safer Boating New Zealand.
