    Edition 98 of Sea Trek is available now!

    In this edition we explore on-water clothing as part of a semi-regular series called Gear and Gadgets, we explore the history of Station Pier, and Peter Newman takes us on a tour from Sandringham to Mordialloc.

    We also have our regular features, 'Who am I', 'Places we have been' and photos from around the club.

    As this is your magazine, your contributions are very important and we want to hear from you with your trips, stories and ideas - things that others will be interested in and may learn something from.

    Please sent your contributions to Glenn at publications@vskc.org.au.

    Edition 97 of Sea Trek is available now, just in time for these long winter evenings!

    In this edition we explore a recent expedition to Flinders Island, a circumnavigation of Wilsons Promontory, a sea kayak assessment weekend and kayak lighting, which is a must for any kayak trip in the dark.

    We also have what will become regular features: 'Who am I', 'Places we have been' and photos from around the club.

    Enjoy!

    Huge congratulations to our new VSKC Sea Leaders - Kate Alberico, Joe Alberico, Ben Flora and Glenn Wilkins!

    Many thanks to John Evertze who was the Assessor for the weekend in November, and his support crew, Keith Russell and Ron Morris.

    Keith says, "they did an excellent job at an intensive weekend full of not so serious mishaps down at the beautiful surf coast."

    As COVID-19 continues to find new ways of impacting upon us, the VSKC Committee thought it timely to remind members of the club's COVID-19 activity guideline for members.

    The committee notes the strong health advice from our Federal and State health authorities for all who can, to get vaccinated.

    As always, the committee asks that all members make themselves aware of the public health restrictions as they apply to our club activities and always act in accordance with the restrictions that are in force at the time and general advice available from the Department of Health and any Federal or State recommendations or requirements that are applicable.  

    Paddle Victoria also has useful guidance for the club and in particular trip leaders:

    • If a case of COVID-19 has been confirmed in a member or a confirmed case has attended your activity or event, please contact your state health authority immediately to get further advice on what steps need to be followed.
    • Clubs can assist the state public health authorities to provide prompt advice by keeping a record of who has attended an activity or an event and what day and time the activity or the event took place; and providing the contact details of those who have attended the event or activity.

    Even under our COVIDSafe settings and with the reservations many of us have as to how this pandemic will play out, it is still very exciting to think we can get together and enjoy our paddling and socializing again.
