Cross Fleet Exploration - Try out the Kayaking Fleet

  • 22 Jun 2024
  • 10:00 - 12:00
  • Meet at the picnic benches near the kayaks/windsurf can on the East side of the JSCA compound.


  • Choose this ticket type if you're a Club Locarno member and want to test out the kayak fleet.
  • Choose this ticket type if you are already a kayak fleet member and want to volunteer to help.


One of the best things about Club Locarno is the wide variety of fleets we have. Take this opportunity to expand your horizons and come and see what the Kayaking Fleet has to offer. Our fleet of human-powered water craft includes touring kayaks, surfskis, OC1 and canoe! If you are a Club Locarno member, but haven't tried the Kayaking Fleet, then this Cross Fleet Exploration event is for you! Even if you don't plan on joining this fleet, this is a great opportunity to see the other parts of our club that your membership fees support and meet other Club Locarno members!

At this free event, you will get a hands-on feel of what the Kayaking Fleet offers. No previous experience necessary. Possible (wind dependent) activities include:

  • Coffee/treats, welcome, and introductions
  • Look at the different kinds boats we have (kayak, surfski, outrigger canoe)
  • Get an introduction to the basics of how to paddle
  • Go through the process of rigging a kayak
  • Join other kayak members for leisurely guided paddle
  • Try getting your bum into a surfski near shore to see if you can stay upright (with the assistance of a volunteer)

We hope you will join us!

Kayak Fleet volunteers: please also register here so we know how many volunteers we can expect to help with this event.

What to wear: 
Wetsuits are advised if you want to surfski (wetsuits can be rented from Windsure if you do not already have one). If you just plan on kayaking, bring a wind jacket and wear any athletic clothing that is NOT cotton.
