DCC Southern Under 3 trips for 2017:

I’ve now added all 2017 dates for Under 3 trips to the DCC calendar.
Note:
1. The June trip has been rescheduled to Sunday 18/06/17 to avoid the long weekend.
2. The November trip is anticipated to be replaced by another Level 1 Rescue Course. Canoe Tas will advertise in due course. The last one was a very successful day and booked out quickly.
3. If any experienced paddlers or aspiring guides wish to pick a date and run an Under 3 that would be fantastic. You don’t have to have a piece of paper but do have to be comfortable with group management and rescue knowledge. I can assist if needed with typical trip and prep notes.

Regards
Vicky

FOR SALE
Carbonology Zest, Carbon Hybrid $2500.
Would suit a heaver intermediate paddler, stability is similar to Epic V10. Really comfortable seat position. Great at catching waves and the smallest runners.
Almost new, washed after use and stored inside.
Selling due to an overestimation of my capabilities in challenging conditions.
Ski is in Hobart but will be in Launceston for the Ice Breaker multi-sport event if you would like to have a try.
I am looking for an Epic V 8/V10 Sport black or red tip.
