Support the club`s annual Hilbre Island Sea Kayak Race

  • by

This Sunday (25th June) sees the club run the annual sea kayak race around Hilbre Island with our friends at Dee Sailing Club on the Wirral.   The weather is looking the best for years so if you have ever fancied padding around either the Little Eye or Hilbre Island with lots of safety support and a fun atmosphere this is the year to give it a go.  We still have lots of entries left and you can borrow  hire a sea kayak from the club if you don’t have one.  Indeed, you can paddle around the Little Eye using any kind of craft (Sit on Top, WW kayak or General purpose kayak, sea kayak etc)

If you really do not want to give it a go why not bring your family along to the beach / sailing club at Thurstaston and watch or support the event.  There is a bar and BBQ from about 1pm (you can purchase drinks and BBQ items on demand) and the race is off at 12 midday (a mass or “Le Mans Style” start from the beach so you need to be there for around 11:45am to see it properly.

We still need safety kayakers, photographers, help with car parking etc so if you can volunteer please get in touch.

Please note the normal Sunday paddle has been taken off the calendar for this Sunday as all those involved will be at the event.
