Sea Kayak Program


Announcements

2017 has seen an increase in kayak paddlers at VCKC. The club kayaks have seen lots of use and the kayak courses have been well attended. 

Over the winter we will be offering a few workshops/study sessions, so keep your eye on the calendar.

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.
