Arriving at the boat-house in the morning, the group was well received by Mr. Val Allan and Mr. Ching of Perak Branch. With a short briefing on kayaking skill and safety aspect by Mr. Ching and Mr. Allan respectively, the expedition commenced at 9.30 am. It took about 3 hours of hard rowing to reach the camp-site at Leisure Chalet, passing by the Lumut Maritime Club, Lumut Port, Lumut Fishery, Lumut Marine Police and the Kampong Acheh Industrial Park beside the port. Evening was a B.B.Q. dinner and we had good fellowship and chat thought the night. The next morning at 8.30am the team rowed back to the boat-house arriving at about 10.30am.
