Get fit paddle (Norman Creek)
Saturday, 03 May 2008
Sea kayak to Norman Creek and back. An opportunity for beginners to test themselves and build up some stamina, and also for those planning on coming on the paddle to Stradbroke Island the next weekend.
Description: We will leave the boat shed at 12 midday and paddle down river with the tide and through the city, under the Story Bridge to Norman Creek arriving about 2pm.
We will have a late picnic lunch in Heath Park on Norman Creek while the tide changes and then return the same way.
The trip is with the tide and we should be able to maintain a steady 5km per hour with perhaps one rest each way.
This is an opportunity for beginners to build up some stamina and for those planning on coming on the weekend paddle to Stradbroke Island on the 10th May to check they are up to it. As this is all with the tide I am calling it a level 1 trip.
Destination: Norman Creek
