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 [...]

Autumn Trip to Vaila followed by soup/sandwiches/cake

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

Club trips – why not volunteer to help organise!

We all want trips to happen, be well run and enjoyable. However, it’s a lot of work for one person to take on, especially when they don’t always need to.

Every trip needs a trip leader, but it doesn’t mean the leader needs to organise it all.  Often they have all their own boats and gear, [...]
