K1 Kayak & Ski Test Paddle and Demo Day

ATTENTION: Super Special Event!

Hello Everyone, and we mean EVERYONE who has an interest in the wonderful sport of paddling.

We are experiencing an increasing demand in the K1 paddling amongst the CSKC members which is wonderful to witness as this is the original pedigree of our beloved club that goes back a few decades.As the result we have partnered up with our good friends at the Australian Paddle Sports for a SUPER SPECIAL Season Starter.

Australian Paddle Sports are the ANZ Distibutors for some of the highest quality brands in the paddling world, including the top quality European made Vajda Kayaks and Surfskis, Jantex paddles, Carbonology Sports, KayakFirst Ergometers, and many more.

So please join us and the helpful team of the Australian Paddle Sports at Swallow Rock Reserve on Saturday 30th at 11.00am for your chance to test paddle a K1 or a Surfski/SLSA Ski or even super compact top quality KayakFirst Ergometer.

This wonderful demo day will then be followed by our first official race of the season which is our President’s Cup and the Doubles Race. Of course, there will be a BBQ and our popular meat raffle too. So this is an event not to miss.

We only NEED you to let us know what level of K1 or Surfski you would like to test in order to help us in our preparation.

New Stock of Club T-shirts and Caps

Our first batch of newly designed club T-Shirts and Caps sold out very quickly in 2021 and as a result another order has been placed by the club. We expect to be able to supply members with the new merchandise at the end of April when the Autumn series racing kicks off on 30 April 2022
