INCC Yarra Paddlers Come And Try Day - November

INCC Yarra Paddlers are hosting yet another come and try flatwater kayaking session in the inner Eastern Melbourne suburb of Fairfield. Attending a come and try day is a really a great opportunity to try something new, to see the Yarra River from a different perspective, and to meet some really great people.

This FREE come and try session is suitable for all adults and children 12 and over of all levels of fitness and ability. All you need to do is to show up on the day, however if I were you I would put it in my calendar, set a reminder and maybe invite a friend along so that I didn't forget. The other bonus of inviting a friend along is that you have someone to share the stories with later.

The type of kayaking that is being offered in this free session is the type of kayaking that I participate in. I'm also a member at INCC Yarra Paddlers and this is where I do most of my on the water training. I'll not be there as I have other commitments to go to that day.

Requirements to take part in the come and try session participants must:
  • Be over the age of 12 years old
  • Have the capability to swim confidently for 50m
  • Wear appropriate clothing - active wear that you don't mind getting wet if you fall in
  • Wet suit booties or reef walkers are an added plus 
Other things for participants to consider bringing along:
  • A cap or visor 
  • Sunscreen - though not the slippery greasy stuff as that will affect how you hold the paddle
  • Change of clothes and a towel for a warm shower after 
  • A drink bottle and some snacks as you'll build up an appetite
What you will have provided:
  • Kayak
  • Paddle
  • Qualified coaches 
  • First aid - should you need it 
  • PFD (Personal Flotation Device) (aka Life Jacket - though legally they are not life jackets) 
  • Change room and bathroom facilities
