New Canoes!

in 2019, the Group was lucky enough to be awarded a grant for the purchase of 6 new canoes and a trailer. With the issues in 2020, it wasn’t until late 2020 that the funds we received and the canoes ordered.

Just before Christmas, the ‘Wobbegong’ canoes were delivered.

The Cubs, Scouts and Venturers were very excited, but with restrictions in place we had to wait to use them. a competition was held to name the canoes, and some great names were chosen. The new names are – Sea Slicer, Jolly Roger, A-Drift, Uncanoeable, Aqua Jet and Possum Tail.

On the 28th of February 2021, the Cubs finally got to use their new canoes on a voyage from Crosslands Reserve to Berowra Waters. The new canoes performed very well and everyone had a great day.
