The date of this years “Try A Boat, Get Afloat” has been announced!!
We will be holding this years event on Sunday May 21st 2017.
As usual the event will be taking place in Eirias Park at Llyn Eirias Boating Lake. We will be commencing paddling for the public at about 10AM and finishing off around 15.30.
As an added bonus, this years event coincides with this years Colwyn Bay Forties Festival so all the more reason to head into Colwyn Bay and have a day of entertainment and fun!
Try A Boat Get Afloat is a free event open to all, under the supervision and guidance of our experienced paddlers and coaches we will are inviting members of the public to come along, get kitted out in the safety gear and have a paddle on the lake.
We will have open boats (Canadian Canoes) and for those feeling a little more confident a selection of kayaks available for people to try. There is no age limit but smaller children must be acompanied in the boat by an adult. All paddlers must sign a consent form and undergo a quick safety briefing. Under 18’s must have the consent form signed by an appropriate adult who must remain at the event whilst the paddler is on the lake.
In the last few years this event has proven to be very popular and has given some of our “Try A Boat” participants the bug to take the sport up and have gone on to join the club and are now active members of Colwyn Canoe Club getting out and paddling on a regular basis.
