For over 30 years Monash, Melbourne and La Trobe (with the occasional tag along) have spent a social weekend in the middle of September in Gippsland on the white water mecca aka the Mitchell River. The weekend is spent rafting, kayaking, pirating with various kinds of boat race.

Kayakers need to be able to t-rescue competently at a minimum. Some kayakers will be asked to portage 2-3 rapids, using the kayaking skills chart as a guide.

This trip caters for all skill levels, the only requirement for rafters is to be a competent swimmer. If you are hesitant to kayak, sign up for rafting.

This clashes with the 75th celebration, so people can drive up on Saturday morning, join the festivities on Saturday night with the other clubs, and run the section on Sunday morning with everyone.

Any kayak/raft leaders please get in touch so we can start getting things planned!
