August 25 @ 18:30 - 20:30

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 18:30 on Tuesday, repeating until September 22, 2020

Women on water

Running each Tuesday evening throughout the summer Women on Water brings women of all paddling abilities together for a relaxed, semi-guided paddle.

Experienced volunteers lead the paddle and keep the group together.

There are also special themed nights throughout the summer, such as Date NightMother Daughter Night and the ever-popular Dress Up Night, where everyone is encouraged to wear their finest dresses… as long as you don’t mind if they get a bit damp of course!

Most paddlers have some experience but newcomers are very welcome.

The success of our Jericho Sailing Centre COVID-19 Safety Protocol depends on the cooperation of our entire Jericho community. Although members have been exceptionally good about adapting to and following the new protocols over the past two weeks, there have been a few who have have put “self” over “community” by not wearing their face mask properly at all times within the Centre. Please do not be selfish. Together we are doing everything we can to minimize the risk of spreading the Covid-19 virus. If we can all keep our respiratory droplets to ourselves we will succeed. This protocol will be updated from time to time as requirements evolve. Please check back to stay up to date. * Contact information is being kept only for contact tracing purposes by government if required and is destroyed after 30 days.
