Sea Kayak Program


January 2019

Election of the new VCKC Executive took place Tuesday, January 8th at 7:30 p.m. Your new Kayak Program Director is Karen Thrussell.

Please join us for our first meet and greet kayak program meeting on Saturday, January 12th at 10am, followed by a club paddle. Bring a lunch!

Additional News:

VCKC now has a fleet of six club kayaks for members use for courses and club sanctioned paddles.

The club kayaks saw lots of use this summer by members who used them to practice paddle strokes and assisted and self rescues, as well as to enjoy a paddle on the club side of the Tillicum bridge.

We have started a "Paddling Partners" list for those members who are looking to find people to paddle with. If you are a member and are interested in being on this list please email us at:

See you on the water or at the clubhouse.

Program Overview

Our Sea Kayak program offers:

  • both flatwater (non-river) 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.

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.
