Deep Water Self Recovery Workshop and K1 try-ot

We will be running another workshop at Bilarong Reserve Narrabeen on Sunday 3 February from 8am. All boat models welcome. Must wear life jackets. This is FREE for LCRK Members.

In addition - we will be taking about 6 of the LCRK K1's down of varying tippyness. You'll be able to try these out in placid conditions with a sandy beach and stand-uppable water depth. A GREAT opportunity to see just how you go in that boat that you thought was too tippy to try off the LCRK pontoon.

Parking is a bit pricey at this location - you can park for free at the end of Wimbledon Road Narrabeen, launch there and paddle over if you prefer.
