Adelaide Canoe Club shares special Seacliff paddle

Adelaide Canoe Club continues to recover their Paddling Calendar after the hiccup from COVID, quite often holding at least five weekly Events, either Training Sessions or coastal paddles from Semaphore South or Seacliff in addition to more remote Expeditions.

Recently club members completed a special Seacliff paddle on Tuesday 14 February.

Adelaide Canoe Club welcomed Chris Fry from Albany Sea Kayaking Club to join the group.

11 kayaks lined up on the beach with a few interested beachgoers braving the windy conditions checking out the paddlers.

“After the introductions and briefing was done we made our way on water with heads down paddling into the stiff breeze, judging by the swell we encountered off Marino Rocks we could look forward to a bit of surfing on our return,” said Adelaide Canoe Club President Mark Loram.

“Given the size of the group we paired up and paddled closer in, to admire the changing coastline as we approached Hallett Cove Conservation Park. It was great to see Chris making his way around the group and chatting with everyone.

“This paddle was a perfect example of the mutual benefits of connecting with other clubs to take advantage of local knowledge and experience some of the stunning paddle locations around our country.

“We arrived back at Seacliff just on sunset and a lovely evening. Afterwards a few of us moved to the Seacliff Hotel while Chris told us about his paddling experiences in Albany along with pictures and video of the stunning coastline. A very enjoyable evening and many thanks Chris for making the connection with our Club. Hopefully you will see us over your way soon,” he said.
