About the trip

Welcome to the first rafting trip of 2023!

This will be a beginner friendly introduction to rafting for all our new members. This will be a day long trip finishing with a BBQ.  We run beginner friendly trips all year long so no stress if you miss the into trips! The $10 cost of this event will cover your fuel and the BBQ!

The plan:

Meet at the sheds (see location of event) to pack gear at 8am then head out to the Picton or another river depending on water level. We will stop at a bakey on the way to the river to get some snacks. After a few hours of rafting we will finish up with a BBQ and drinks before heading back to the sheds. We will try to car pool to save on driving. 

What you need:

  • Join the club here: Join the club!
  • Swimmers or thermals to go under wetsuit
  • Towel and dry change of cloths and dry shoes
  • Money for the bakery and fuel
  • Enclosed footwear for on river (Something you can swim in like Dunlop Volleys, Wetsuit booties, etc)

Wetsuits and all other gear you need to paddle can be provided by the club!
