Who we are:

 A group for people who like kayaking and are looking to meet new people and make new friends. We are a recreational and social group so skill level is not important, its more about having fun as we learn and enjoying the company of other kayakers. Socialising is also an important part of it and all our events will involve a visit to a pub for food, drinks and chats or maybe a BBQ on the beach etc.

 We paddle on canals, rivers and harbours and try to do something different each time and move the location around so all members get a chance to come along. We will also be doing some weekend trips during the summer months.

 So if you are looking to enjoy some great days out and meet new people and make new friends kayaking then we look forward to hearing from you and hope to meet you out on the water soon.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not provide any equipment or training for our paddles. A full list of the groups responsibilities is below:

1. Hampshire Casual Kayakers, as many groups organized through meetup.com, is a networking group. Our organizers and hosts are not designated with the responsibility to teach kayaking or other boating skills.

2. Our organizers and hosts are people who like to kayak, not necessarily expert paddlers.

3. The host of each of our Hampshire Casual Kayakers events has some responsibility to post a description of our proposed trips, with suggestions about when and where we will go, and how we will get there.

4. No one is leading any of our floats, or providing any formal instruction.

5. Paddlers who join us will be responsible for themselves, and parents are responsible for their minors.

6. You have a responsibility to ask questions and to share any concerns you might have about your abilities with the group before you launch and to make sure you are in a group where at least one other person has enough experience and is willing to take you under their wing or assist you when needed.

7. As a community of peers, everyone should watch out for each other.

8. Decisions about activities on trips are often made collectively, on the spot, by those who show up. Occasionally, but rarely, people that show up split into smaller groups each going their own direction based on similar interests. Members of each group are then responsible to watch out for each other.

Disclaimer & Assumption of Risk/Liability:

Kayaking, like all sports has inherent risks and dangers. All paddlers (on behalf of him/her self and his/her minor children) are responsible for their own safety during Hampshire Casual Kayakers events, voluntarily accepts any and all risks of injury, harm, medical conditions, or property damage, assumes all liabilities, and waives any and all damages against Hampshire Casual Kayakers (including its organizers, hosts, and members).
