Successfully clearing serious security, we made our way into the historic, and impressive, building almost hiding behind the familiar “colonial” façade. “All the way to the ... More

PNSW Race 7, Davistown Report

The early sunlight promised a nice winter’s day, but the forecast was for increasing wind! So, when we erected the Club gazebo, we sought “safety in numbers”, and tied ours to the Newy Paddlers’ gazebo, and weighted the outer corners with drums of water – kindly filled by the Staff at the refurbished Stillwa...

CCCC Summer Race 8, 11th June 2017

 A favourable change in the weather produced a great day for racing!

CCCC K2 Times

There has been some interest in the K2 time set by Warwick Nichols and Matt Miles last Sunday. Mick Carroll has even contacted me from Austria, to remind me that he and Jack Ward had set an even faster time some years ago, in the Double Dragon recreational craft. The records reveal that, on the 7th November 2011, they ... More

CCCC Summer Race 6, 7th May 2017

We were greeted by lovely sunshine at Lions Park, and quite a few recreational paddlers - some of whom went up to the weir, then down to the Lake, and back! Hours of trudging 'round and 'round on the windlass yesterday, aboard the sailing ship - James Craig, (hoisting a new t'gallant spar), must have invigorated Max ... More
