Sea Kayak Program


Announcements

The 2017 kayak course schedule is posted on the calendar. We are offering two levels of Paddle Canada Courses. The Kayak Basic Skills course and the Level 1 Sea Kayak Skills course. To register simply click on the course in the calendar.

It was great to see so many coming out for the Tuesday night summer kayak clinics last year. People had a chance to practice their paddle strokes along with experienced paddlers who provided helpful suggestions. Generally a good time was had by all. We plan to continue these clinics in 2017. Dates to be posted soon.

Happy paddling!!

Program Overview

Our Sea Kayak program offers:

  • both flatwater and ocean-going paddles, and some surf and river.
  • instruction at various levels (reasonably priced).
  • clinics on such topics as rescues, stroke technique, braces, rolling, currents, tides, navigation, chart reading and marine weather.


The club owns several kayaks that can be used by members for club activities.  Please go to the Club Kayaks page to learn about borrowing club equipment.

The kayak program meets, jointly with the canoe program, on the 3rd Monday of each month from September to May inclusive (except in December) to plan courses and events. The kayak library of books and DVD's is available at these meetings. We usually have a guest speaker who discusses some aspect of sea kayaking, or the outdoors.

A paddler contact list is being developed that will be a useful resource to assist members in meeting like-minded kayakers to paddle with. 

Please check out the calendar and the current newsletter to find out about upcoming events and speakers.

 All VCKC programs are run by volunteers. Please consider volunteering within the club.
