    For many, going on wilderness trips is the ultimate way to enjoy canoeing, be it a weekend family getaway, or a remote, multi-day lake expedition. Fun, comfort and safety are attainable if paddlers are properly prepared.

    The Canoe Tripping Paddler course is designed for people wanting an introduction to going on wilderness lake trips. The course content is covered during the 2-day trip including an overnight camping experience. The course is great for anyone interested in learning more about tripping, and outdoor or schoolteachers that wish to develop their skills to become leaders.

    Prerequisite: RCABC Lakewater 1 (tandem) or 2 (solo) or equivalent. You need to be a proficient paddler as this course’s focus is on the tripping skills and not basic paddling taught in other courses.

    Duration: Minimum 2 days with 1 overnight

    Content: The most notable content of the course is the experience of heading out on a BC lake or canoe route. With everything you need with you in the canoe, and the leadership of an experienced instructor, this overnight tripping experience offers endless opportunity to build skills along the way. Included are:

    ·       properly loading canoes and waterproofing gear

    ·       rescues of loaded canoes

    ·       menu and food preparation, cooking and food safety

    ·       navigation and group travel and safety

    ·       environment and Leave No Trace

    ·       best camping sites, tents, stoves and tarps

    Some canoeing gear can be provided; however, you are strongly encouraged to bring your own canoe & equipment so that you’ll gain first-hand knowledge of how it performs for tripping.

    Please register online now to secure your spot. You can delay paying until one week before the course start date; a payment reminder email will be sent at that time. 

    Course-specific details will be sent in advance by the instructor, Alan Thomson. Please email Alan for questions and further information littoral@shaw.ca

    “Hooray, hooray, the first of May! We’ll Paddle the Cow from Lake to Bay” – credit to Tom Staebell

    VCKC will be holding its Annual “Running of the Cow(ichan)” this year on Saturday and Sunday, May 2nd to 3rd. This is a two-day moving water event where we paddle the Cowichan River,  from Cowichan Lake all the way down to the ocean – river water levels permitting. This is open to all VCKC members who have completed Moving Water 1 (River) Canoe training.  

    On Saturday we will start at the weir at Cowichan Lake at 10 am and paddle down to Stoltz Pool camp. A shuttle will be set up for those who choose not to paddle the canyon.  At the camp, we will enjoy a great evening with a hearty meal and warm campfire to share tales of the day's events. On Sunday morning, we will pack up the camp and complete our paddle as far as the water levels will take us, with a final shuttle back to the vehicles.

    Camping is available at the Stoltz Pool Group Site in Cowichan River Provincial Park. Cost for the event is $25 per person and includes: Provincial Park camping fee for 2 nights, shuttle of canoes and canoeists to drop off and pick-up spots, and  dinner on Saturday night.

    Club members who are not paddling, may also join us for camping and our Saturday night dinner, as its a great place to hike and bike in the area. 

    VCKC also invites all moving water paddlers in the area for the weekend to celebrate the last great weekend of river paddling before the summer low water levels set in (well hopefully there will be a few more weekends).

     If you are interested in attending, please register or contact:

    Experience canoeing on the ocean. Learn how to manage typical sea conditions such as currents, tides, and weather on coastal waters. After this course you’ll be able to paddle on your own maritime adventures.  

    This two-part course begins with 12 hours of classroom work spread over 3 evenings that will give you the knowledge to prepare & plan for trips. In the second part of the course, you will be applying your knowledge in a two-day group trip on the ocean. [If you don't want to take part in the overnight trip, the instructor(s) will try to arrange a day trip at a time that suit participants: this will lead to a lower level of certification.

    Topics include:        

         Understanding weather, currents, tides & waves

         Navigation charts, course plotting and compass use

         Loading and trimming a canoe to handle wind and waves

         Safety gear and regulations

         Environmental concerns and Leave No Trace ethics

         Trip planning and leadership 

    Our certified instructors deliver the Recreational Canoeing Association of British Columbia’s (RCABC) Ocean Canoeing course and the Paddle Canada Intermediate Coastal Canoeing course; which involves a capsize and rescue session. 

    This course requires the purchasing of a chart and compass. Purchase the course textbook 'Freedom of the Seas Vol 1.Navigation, Sea State & Weather - A Paddler's Manual' is strongly recommended. Personal camping gear is required for the course trip.

    Some canoeing gear can be provided, however you are strongly encouraged to bring your own canoe & equipment so that you’ll gain first-hand knowledge of how it performs for ocean tripping.

    The ocean trip is usually paddled in tandem canoes. If you need a paddling partner, every effort will be made to find one for you.

    PREREQUISITE – RCABC Lakewater Level 2 or equivalent. Paddle Canada Intermediate Lakewater. You need to be a proficient paddler as this course’s focus is on the tripping skills and not basic paddling taught in other courses.
