Boat Hire, Club Boats and Equipment

Boat Hire Bookings (available to LCRK Club Members Only)

LCRK currently owns a number of boats and other items for the use of Members. All boats require a minimum level of proficiency and are invariably faster/less stable than those at commercial kayak hire facilities. You need to be familiar with the LCRK Boat Hire Policy and the conditions under which a boat is made available to you.

For booking club boats contact the LCRK Committee via

  • Please take CARE of the boat - they have an aversion to anything harder than water (eg rocks, oysters)
  • Do not at any stage place boat on hard surfaces such as asphalt, concrete, gravel, pontoon or worn grass
  • Use fold out chairs provided in the Shed for setting up boat
  • The boat is to be washed and dried before returning to the shed - same rack, same fore/aft orientation
  • Please report any damage/maintenance issues (use the email above)
