About Us

Summary

QSKC is a recreational sea kayaking club. We welcome all sea kayakers interested in participating in and challenging themselves on organised trips and events. We promote the development of skills within the safety of the club environment. The focus of the QSKC is to provide training, education and organised recreational sea kayaking trips/events for its members.

QSKC is a virtual club; it has no physical clubhouse, so we have no storage facilities nor club equipment, so all members need to have their own kayaks and equipment. If you do not have your own equipment, please contact the Trip Leader; they may be able to lend you a kayak for a small fee.

QSKC endorses the Australian Canoeing Minimal Impact Guidelines on all Club trips/events.
