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.
