Just a reminder that this Monday sees our final session indoors and we’re moving outdoors to Bridge End on 14 May!

29th May - Thursday night coaching and trip

With visiting paddlers plus all the beginners in flat calm conditions, a trip round Hous was quickly arranged for the majority and away they went for what was a lovely paddle! Visibility wasn’t great but it all added to the experience of the first trip for beginners this year.

A second group were also out in a [...]

The first Thursday Nights beginners sessions of the season

2014 beginners session 15th May

The 2014 Thursday night sessions kicked off on 15th May.

A good turnout at Bridge End with a variety of experience across the twenty paddlers on the water, the blustery conditions challenged this year’s beginners and got the more experienced techniques dusted off. Nothing quite like having to demonstrate technique to [...]

First committee meeting for 2014. If you’re interested in shaping what’s going to happen throughout this year, let one of the committee know and turn up to discuss.

Vaila - Saturday 9th November - a cold but lovely time on the water followed by good food and great company

After what can only be described as a wet and blustery Friday, Saturday proved a lovely day for a paddle.  The conditions: cold – yes, but not too bad; very light winds, occasional  rain showers; definitely some confused sea out past Vaila, calmer water in by. The group: six of this year’s beginners plus [...]

Vementry - club camping trip - 6th/7th September

On Friday evening, nine intrepid paddlers braved a poor forecast and set forth from Clousta for an overnight camp. After a bit of a breezy crossing with a just a touch of swell, they arrived in Vementry, promptly set up camp before the sun set and, with a good fire burning on the beach and [...]

Thursday 5th Lerwick paddle - a great night on the water

19 paddlers took to the water last night to make the most of one of the best Thursday nights we’ve had this season. Despite headaches with getting enough boats together, got on the water at the Lerwick Marina and paddled across to Bressay.

As the clouds gave us a stunning display of colours over Bressay, we [...]

Thursday 18th - an evening of fog and paddling

A much quieter night than the last few weeks, only nine paddlers on the water but it was VERY foggy on what looked like the calmest waters so far this season!

A good discussion about  moving between 1* and 2* paddling started the evening off before all headed on to the water at Bridge End to [...]

Thursday 18th July – finishing the 1*

Talking with a few folks, we’re looking at a ‘tidy up’ session this week at Bridge End. Even if it’s a beautiful evening we’re going to try and get everyone to the point of 1* certification, though it won’t stop us doing some paddling if conditions are good.

It might have been a foggy evening, it might have been a bit breezy at the put in point down at Quarff. It didn’t stop 16 paddlers taking to the water on another Thursday night club beginners trip!

The individual organisational aspect of going on a trip were tested as cars drew up at Quarff, boats [...]
