River Rambles (social paddling for women)

River Rambles are social paddles designed for female social paddlers.  They consist of both general public and inter-club social paddling activities for women of all ages, skill level and boat types. The objective is to provide opportunities to get out on the water in a friendly, social and safe manner and in the company of women lead by qualified female Ramble Leaders.  Registrations are essential.

If the weather is bit ordinary Paddle Victoria will also provide a good pair of thermals and a spray jacket to keep you warm. We aim to have no swims during the sessions unless you volunteer – BUT you will get wet.  Splashing, wet feet and a wet butt is inevitable.

This year we have introduced the RR Paddle Pass.  Each Paddle costs $35 however if you register for 2 or 4 at once, you will receive a discount!  You can also purchase a “Bring a friend” for only $60 – so cheaper if you bring someone to splash!

Not sure what is all about?  Check out our promotional video to give you some idea.
