  • For experienced paddlers who have joined the the fleet and want to get access to the boats.
    New or rusty paddlers should take a beginner/refresher lesson

Registration is closed

All new members of the kayak fleet are required to take a kayak lesson, or demonstrate their existing skills in a Kayak Checkout, before they can sign out club boats.

This checkout is for paddlers who can demonstrate basic kayak skills:

  • wet exit
  • a competent solo recovery or self rescue with a paddle float
  • an assisted rescue
Also, we ask members to use a floating launch and landing to reduce wear and tear on the kayaks.  If you don't already have these skills, or haven't been in a kayak for a while and feel a bit rusty, we recommend that you sign up for one of our beginner/refresher lessons instead.

Please register as space is limited, and so we can email you more details.

Checkout sessions take approximately 3hrs and is a great way to meet other new members of the Club Locarno Kayak Fleet.

You must wear a wetsuit or dry suit for the checkout. Wetsuits can be rented at Windsure, also on the JSCA compound.
