Kayak Pool Practice at Lord Byng Pool

This event is open to all Club Locarno members and all levels of kayaker, beginner to advanced.

Note new time: Meet at 4pm at JSCA for 5-6pm pool time

Why attend: Pool time is an excellent opportunity to practice your wet exits, self rescues, assisted rescues or rolling technique in a friendly, safe and warm environment. This is also a great opportunity to connect with other Club Locarno kayakers and plan trips for the coming paddle season. It's is also a chance to learn how to load and safely karry kayaks on kars. It can be a hot tub time - relax in the Lord Byng hot tub on a cold winter evening. 

We'll have six boats in the pool with a paddler. We can also have one 'helper' per kayak in the pool to coach and assist.  If you're not in a kayak or actively helping you'll have to sit in the hot tub

We'll meet at JSCA at 4pm to load boats and gear onto the cars - we need three cars that can safely carry kayaks (roof rack bars preferred). 

What to bring: Bring your swim suit, rash shirt and towel. Also, bring swim goggles as being able to see clearly under the water really helps orient yourself when upside down. Nose clips if you don't like water up your nose. 

Lord Byng Pool Rules:

  • Only kayakers and active helpers in the pool. There are no swimmers or floaters
  • Kayakers must were a PFD. 
  • Helpers must be competent swimmers or wear a PFD
  • Rental is one hour, sharp (5pm-6pm). So we need to have the boats unloaded from the cars and ready to carry in before 5pm
  • No food or drink on the pool deck please
  • You must sign the Lord Byng waiver before entering the pool

There are four pool sessions planned.  Depending on demand for this event, we may limit the number of pool seasons you can join. We need three cars and drivers, so we may need to give preference to those members who can help with transportation.
