Can I get a basic brief on the sessions ? 

The YCH conducts Fun Kayaking Sessions on weekends at :

7:30 AM : Funkayaking

5:00 PM : Sunset Kayaking

After about 10-15 minutes of on shore training and a talk of safety you are on the water and learning the manoeuvre a Kayak using basic forward and turning strokes with the aid of a Coach and under the watchful eye of a Safety Boat.

Knowing to swim is a good thing and we encourage you to learn for all water sports but the FunKayaking you will be provided with a certified lifejacket and the Kayak itself is made of rotomoulded plastic with buoyancies so it floats.

The session often involves some free racing giving you the thrill of learning a sport and racing the Kaykas all within a a few hours.

For the morning sessions a nominally costed  breakfast is served and Sailing sessions are also available based on weather conditions.

You can register thru one of our channel partners or can just drop in for a spot registration any Saturday morning at 7:15 and we are soon opening up Sundays to at the same time.

When does it start and wrap up ? 

Fun Kayaking Registration starts at 7:15 will wrap up by 9:45 AM. Light Breakfast included

Sunset Kayaking : REgistration at 4:30 PM and wraps up by 6:30

I cannot swim and I have never Kayaked ? 

We take special care of non-swimmers so long as you are not afraid of water and can float in a life jacket comfortably without fear and apprehension. The session is for beginners and is recreational in nature.

You will learn the basics of paddling and manoeuvring a Kayak in steady water and some racing too. 

Is Kayaking good for Fitness ? 

Kayaking is great for fitness  and it complements other fitness activities, like running or biking, because it doesn't involve pounding and stressing your joints, and uses your core upper body and burns a load of calories. Check it out at :
