Hi all, I will be running a beginner kayaking trip on the Yarra river on Sunday. We will be meeting at the mumc boatshed at 10am and heading 40min out of town to the warrandyte section of the Yarra. This part of the river is perfect for beginners with small sections of easier whitewater. If you haven't been in a kayak before you will start by doing a 'wet exit' before paddling approximately 5km downstream. We will practice various skills at certain parts of the river such as basic paddling manoeuvres. This will be dependent on level of experience and how quickly the group progresses. Paddling part of the trip will take around 2hrs. All in all it should be a fun day on the water! You need to read this document before participating. It contains guidelines and safety information as well as what you need to bring: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/36882041/Particpant%20Guideline.pdf Trip limit will be determined on number of leaders and cars that can transport kayaks.
