    Annual Cowichan River Remembrance Day Paddle will take place November 11.  Timing will be to have a minute of silence at the Burma Star Memorial at Stolz pool at 11AM.  (A little reading of the history of the Memorial.)  Car shuttle will need to be setup first.   Contact canoe@vckc.ca if a canoe is needed, RCABC MW1 is a requirement.

    • 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
    • Meet at VCKC clubhouse

    Tentatively we will paddle Cowichan Bay.   Unless the weather is wrong for the bay and we will post another location here.

    Usual requirements - you must have taken the basic tandem canoe or introduction to sea-kayaking courses and carry all the Transport Canada required safety equipment. Although this is a short and coastline-hugging trip, everyone should have spare clothes in a drybag or waterproof container - you never know. Listen to the weather forecast and dress appropriately for the likely conditions.

    If you need to use a Club boat, please contact David Dorosz canoe@vckc.ca or Linda Hall at kayakbookings@vckc.ca. If you need a partner, we will try to find you one.

    Please let me know if you plan to take part by Thursday evening (Nov 16).
