PADDLEBOARDING, KAYAKING AND OPTIMIST YACHTING
Our Main Lake is perfect for paddleboarding, kayaking and optimist yachting. We offer a freshwater environment and the safety of a man-made lake in beautiful surrounds. We also have a flotilla of optimist yachts which have been kindly supplied by the Waipukurau Rotary Club, a quiver of kayaks, life jackets, a small tender boat and all other required gear.
Along with all the equipment for sailing and kayaking we also have trained staff to coach and support young people. The clean fresh water, grass lawns and walking access around the entire lake makes Backpaddock Lakes a very safe and user friendly environment for young yachties and aspiring Olympic kayakers.
