SUBJECT TO THE RESERVOIR BEING OPEN. WEATHER & WATER CONDITIONS PERMITTING

Bring Your Own Boat (BYOB)

Spend a lovely evening on the water exploring the Glenmore Reservoir. Visit the shoreline or head to the Weaselhead area to observe wildlife. Generally have a nice evening out.
Arrive early to get yourself ready to have the boats on the water by 6pm and be off the water by 8pm. Note parking is limited due to high levels of traffic these days.
Beginners are welcome. There is no formal lesson, but will be assisted and accompanied until comfortable.
I am usually wearing a red cap.

Distance: Approx 4-8km round trip depending on conditions and how strong of a paddler you are.

NOTE: Participants are expected to attend a mandatory pre-float briefing prior to being on the reservoir.
