    Each spring, on the 4th Saturday in April,  the club organizes and executes a Shoreline Clean-up of the Gorge Waterway adjacent to the clubhouse.  This year marks the 20th anniversary of this event.  

    Many hands make light work.  Spend Saturday morning in a Voyageur spotting and removing trash in and around the Gorge. We paddle the shoreline and pick up any garbage/debris we find.

    Dress to be muddy.   A chance to really fill those big canoes with freight!

    RCABC LAKEWATER POLING

    WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
    Canoe poling on lakes is an enjoyable art, which adds a new dimension to canoeing. A basic understanding of canoeing with a paddle is beneficial before starting poling. The next step is to begin poling on a lake and learn the wide variety of strokes and manoeuvres that the pole enables. Lake water canoe poling has attracted:
    • Canoeists that have nearby shallow lakes and marshes to explore that are difficult to paddle
    • Canoeists that are looking for new challenges and appreciate the history of poling
    • Canoeists wanting to work towards poling on moving water
    • Canoeists that enjoy the benefits of standing and the physical dexterity and fitness of poling
    • Clubs, instructors or enthusiasts that want to keep the art of poling alive

    PREREQUISITE – RCABC Lakewater Level 2 (Basic Solo) or equivalent

    DURATION – 10 hours

    CONTENT
    Outline for RCABC Lakewater Poling

    The content of the RCABC Lakewater Poling course assumes the student already has basic canoeing skills, safety and theory with a paddle. The content is therefore mostly practical skills and practice as the techniques of poling require balance and agility. Here are some examples of the content:

    • Walk From One End of Canoe to Other
    • Walk Backwards with Pole
    • Standing Jump Forward
    • Strokes: Kayak Stroke, Windmill, Snubbing, etc
    • Manoeuvres: Straight course, surface drag turns, push turns, bow pry turns

    Back to Top...

      

    RCABC MOVING WATER POLING

    WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
    Moving water (river) canoe poling is an excellent way to explore rivers, poling either upstream or downstream. If you're an explorer and enjoy canoeing, moving water poling is a natural way to expand your canoeing ability. Moving water canoe poling has attracted:

    • Canoeists that have nearby shallow rivers to explore that have no road access and must be poled upstream
    • Experienced canoeists that are looking for new challenges and appreciate the history of poling
    • Canoeists that enjoy the benefits of standing and the physical dexterity and fitness of poling
    • Clubs, instructors or enthusiasts that want to keep the art of poling alive
    • RCABC Instructors that are wishing to become a master instructor and need a third Instructor certificate

    PREREQUISITE – RCABC Lakewater Canoe Poling & RCABC Solo Movingwater (Level 2) or equivalent

    DURATION – 10 hours

    CONTENT
    Outline for RCABC Movingwater Poling

    The content of the RCABC Moving water Poling course assumes the student is familiar with the river environment and can safely solo canoe with a paddle. This is achieved through the Moving water Level 2 prerequisite. Based on that foundation, this is an overview of the poling course content which is taught in up to Grade 2 moving water:

    • Review of river safety, gear, clothing, extra flotation, and other topics from RCABC Moving water Level 1&2.
    • Poling strokes such as surface poling, windmill, snubbing, quick jab, etc.
    • Downstream manoeuvres such as eddy turns, ferries, drag, draw and push turns, holding, etc.
    • Upstream manoeuvres such as shifts, forward ferries, holding, turns, etc.
