Calling all Kayakers and Paddlers

Calling all paddling enthusiasts! Commodore Roy Power and Donncha O’Gradaigh are exploring the idea of setting up a Paddling and Kayaking group at WHSC.

The idea is to encourage everyone with a kayak to get more time on the water in organised group outings, and get some tips on safety and best practice. WHSC would provide safety cover and Donncha, who is an experienced paddler, would lead the group.

Some initial outings would take place in protected areas of the bay close to the slip and beaches, hopefully leading up to some more adventurous days out, including picnics at Portally or Walls cove, where the group could potentially be joined by walkers over land.

It’s all in the planning stages for now and the first step is to ascertain whether there is enough interest for something like this, so please signal your enthusiasm by joining the WhatsApp group.

If you’d like to be added, please send a WhatsApp to 086 8516244 or email
