Safety Kayakers for Great Swim events.

E-mail sent by Member 182c56c, Tuesday, 6th June 2017 @ 1:52pm

Forwarded message for those qualified and would like to take part please enquire below



Hello

We are looking for safety kayakers to provide support at a couple of our events -  the Great East Swim and the Suunto Great London Swim – and I was wondering if you would know of any people/clubs that may be interested in taking part. 

Safety kayakers are crucial to the safe delivery of our Great Swim events. They work as a team to provide safety cover around the course under the guidance of an experienced team leader from Swim Safety. It is also a great experience and a fun day out!

This year the Great East Swim is taking place at Alton Water, Suffolk on the 17th of June. The Suunto Great London Swim is at Newham and will be taking place 1st July.  Kayakers will be paid £100 for each event.  

I would be really grateful If you could spread the word. 
The link for the online registration is here: http://greatswim.org/kayaker

Many thanks and we look forward to hearing from you!

Free K2

E-mail sent by Member 182c56c, Wednesday, 26th April 2017 @ 10:57pm

Hello All

Following on from the previous email  Peter Coltman has said

We would really like to get this boat out of our club as we have some new sea boats coming. It is free to a good home for anyone who can collect it. It is a Nomad 6.


Colchester Canoe Club have got a K2 built by Nomad that is sitting in the club and never used. It needs some attention to repair the cockpit rim, a part of which is missing but seems to be a flexible strip that can be replaced and probably isn't a big issue. The cables on the rudder are also a complete mess and need to be stripped out and restrung. We know we are not going to do this or use the boat and would prefer to see someone getting some use out of it. 

Text Peter Coltman on 07802 233504 for further info and a chance to view

If this is a craft you would like but unsure on how to repair a cockpit rim or repair of the cables and rudder there are ECA members who may be able to help to get this repaired just ask  Paul Younger 07850 780002

28th Blackwater tour

Dear All

I have had the following email from Mike" 

On 12 Jan 2017, at 18:39, MJRob <mjrob45@gmail.com> wrote:


Hi Paul

 

I’ve had a very large demand for places already so the list is full now.

 

I have set up a waiting list just in case some drop out but I expect that list to be greater than those dropping out.

 

Could you send out a note to say the list is full please?

 

 

This is good news in one way as I have as many as we can cope with, but sad that there is still going to be more people who miss out.

 

Thanks

 

Mike

Happy New Year to All

I received an email from Peter Coltman asking if I could circulate this to the membership, if you are interested could I ask that you contact Peter Colman or Peter Goldsmith

"John Farrow has these two canoes some 40 years old. He would like to find a good home for them. Need tidying but seem sound. Any thoughts?" If your interested in a clasic wooden Kayak these could be just what your looking for.

If you have not received the attachment with this email please view the photo via this dropbox linky
