Event Description

Club Paddle  - Werribee River

                                                                                        

Saturday 14th October 9.15am – 1pm

 

                        Beginner with some experience (others welcome too)

 

          Distance       16km    

 

          Start              JD Bellin Reserve, Beach Road, Werribee South

 

Description Starting from the mouth of the river we travel 8km upstream, having a picnic lunch along the way. 8km back to the start. It is a picturesque route. The tide will be helping us most of the way.

 

Transport    Your own or we can arrange it – just let me know

           

Level             Ideal for those who have done a Canning Street paddle and are looking for something new and slightly more challenging.

                        Intermediate and experienced paddlers welcome

 

Time              Meet at 8.45 (Werribee) for a 9.15am start on the water, after a                                       paddle briefing. Approximate car travel time 40min. I’ll be at the club

                        rooms at 7.30 to help with loading.

            Finish            1 pm at JD Bellin Reserve for a coffee. This is an estimated time

                                    and depends on paddler experience.
