Wicklow mountains kayaking club

Post by Steve Fahy » Fri May 29, 2009 1:01 pm

Hi All,

Over the last two years there has been asurge of interest locally in kayaking in Laragh and surrounding areas, especially locals who have never paddled.

Many have realised that they have some of the best rivers in the country on their doorstep and want to get interested.

Also their are smal pockets of paddlers around wicklow that already have been paddling for some time and rarely paddle with each other.

What we are trying to do is;

1.Provide a safe training oportunity for people who are interested in starting kayaking based in wicklow.

2.Promote awareness of paddlesports in rural wicklow areas and the potential benefit to the locality and environment, (create a scene). This will also help should their ever be a need for local representation on any issue that affects kayakers using the rivers in Wicklow.

3.Create a network of kayakers and contacts to enable them to paddle and learn from local paddlers and recieve support and training.

To get things going and get some more ideas and feedback we intend to hold an open night for all interested parties in Laragh where we can all form how the club will funtion and get the initial formalities done.

Date Friday 26th June in the Brockagh resource centre in Laragh at 7.30pm.

anyone interested in joining can contact me on [email protected] or 086-3644283 or Paul Summers on 086-3713795.

Thanks

Steve Fahy
