Event: Southern Islands Kayaking Trip
Date: Sunday, 6th April 2014 (Full Day)
Description: Start off from Sentosa Island to the Southern Islands using either single or twin Gumotex kayaks. Many of us will be going to paddle there for the first time, so this could be exciting but also full of uncertainties. But please be assured that the route has been designed for beginners and intermediate paddlers alike. As long as you have a sense of adventure, do not worry about how far or how long we will paddle. It is not about your fitness but your desire for new experiences. We will all make it together.
