The Event: After a long quiet period with being busy at our base in Interlaken and not having time to run taster events on lake Zurich we are finally coming back and organizing a kayak taster day with a BBQ on the lake Zurich - Uerikon.
Our aim is to try and create a network of people in Switzerland who can get out paddling together and enjoy the beautiful Swiss lakes from this unique perspective. Paddlesports are a great sport for everyone offering so many challenges and disciplines to explore. We'd like to invite everyone in all ages and levels to come and visit us on lake Zurich and see what we have to offer and just get to know everyone.
It's a great change to try our top-quality sea kayaks and more importantly, make new friends and meet fellow paddlers while enjoying a relaxing day on the lakeside where we have the BBQ running.
Please note that the equipment will have to be shared out during the day and people have to take turns out on the boats and we can't paddle far from the shore. Although you can come and go as you please generally the afternoons are much busier than the mornings so it is worth getting here early.
We can continue the day after and head into a pub together in town for a drink and that way also give a change to people that are busy during the day to join us and catch up!
Time: between 10am and 4pm
Meeting: parking after Seestrasse 284, 10 mins walk from SBB Uerikon towards Rapperswil
Nearest train station: Uerikon on lines S7 and S16

• Waterproof jacket depending on weather
• Sun cream & hat
• Change of clothes

If you have your own boat, bring them along as the idea of the day is to meet like minded people and get a paddlers network up and running. For those without boats, we just ask for a contribution for the equipment and organisation for the day of CHF20 (18Euro) per person. You can pay by cash on the spot.
Looking forward to meet you on the water!
