Kilchoan Kayakers' First 2010 Outing

We had a good turn out on Thursday for the revived Kilchoan Kayakers with 6 paddlers taking to the water in a collection of boats.

It turned out to be a perfect evening with a light breeze and plenty of sunshine. We started off with a quick cruise around Glas Eilean point where we mingled with the seals and enjoyed the beautiful views of Kilchoan from the sea. Going back into the breeze required a little more effort.

After returning to the jetty we practiced a few rescue moves, helping swimmers back into a boat, righting a boat with the help of another kayak and getting back into a boat unaided - all useful skills and best practiced in the sheltered waters with plenty of helpers around if needed.

Future meetings have been moved to Wednesday at 6pm to avoid clashing with the fire service training.

If you are interested in joining us please email No experience required and we can provide kit with enough notice.
