Down Cockle Creek with a paddle
We have a regular group of members who call themselves the "Cockle Creek Crew" turn up for a competitive sprint each Monday and Thursday. This is a handicap race based on ability and craft being paddled. Many of the members are experienced at the highest level and are very willing to pass on their knowledge to improve your technique and speed as they want to have a good race.
The ages range from Junior to 70 so if you feel like a bit of cardio and having some competitive fun then this is the place for you.
