Congratulations to all who took part   It was a great day and well supported given the forecast and actual conditions, which were challenging but agreed by all - fantastic. A big thank you to the East Coast Sea Kayaking Club members, committee, friends and families, for supporting us from start to finish.

As ever, the library will be around so bring back any unwanted items and take out new stuff!

The race was postponed due to Small Craft Warning.

The Dublin Bay Sea Kayak Race scheduled for Sunday 4th September was postponed because Met Eireann issued a Small Craft Warning.

Met Eireann predicted (and we got) F6 winds gusting from South.

As safety is a prime concern, the organisers postponed the race.

We propose to re-schedule the race in two weeks time on Sunday, 18th September on the same course.

The Dublin Bay Sea Kayak Race is due to go ahead this Sunday, 18th September 2011. The venue is changed to Bray Sailing Club as thay have kindly offered us rescue boats and use of their club house facilities. As the Wind is forecast is F5/6 NW, the event is suitable only for Touring and Racing Classes. There will be no Novice or Sit on class races. The courses will closely follow the coast line to avoid the strongest of the wind and will be tightly marshalled.

Learn to roll, brace and scull for support!

Come to our pool sessions to learn or practice all of those manoevours where you'll either likely or intentionally get wet, in the warmth and comfort of a new indoor swimming pool! Pool sessions are often used to learn and/or practice rolling a kayak, but they're also great to practice other things, like support strokes (low-brace, high-brace, sculling) and self rescue. With the revised ICU Level 3 syllabus in particular, intending candidates would be well-advised to take advantage of this opportunity to learn to brace and scull, as well as rolling.
