Remembrance Day Paddle on the Cowichan

The VCKC Canoe program will be holding its Annual Remembrance Day Cowichan River Paddle on Wednesday November 11. This event is open to all VCKC members who have completed the Basic Moving Water course at a minimum. The schedule is as follows:

  •   8 am – meet at VCKC clubhouse to gather equipment and arrange ride shares (if possible)
  •   9 am – meet at Serious Coffee, Boys Road, Duncan
  • 10 am – Arrive at Stoltz Pool boat ramp to gear up, dress up, and run shuttle vehicles
  • 11 am – Observe Remembrance at the Burma Star Memorial (Stoltz Pool Boat Ramp)
  • 11:30 onward – Paddle the Cowichan River (class 1&2) down to Vimy Road takeout

This is a great river event for both novice and experienced river paddlers alike. If you completed one of our Moving Water courses this past year, this is a great opportunity to hone your skills while having lots of fun on the river during salmon run.

If you have you require a club canoe, please contact canoebooking@vckc.ca. We will get those loaded onto the VCKC trailer on the evening of Tuesday November 10th.

This will need to be a safe socially-distanced event:

  •  Masks are required during any vehicle shuttles
  •  We will split into smaller groups (up to 8) and run the river in stages
  •  Big Canoes are not available this year due to COVID – small solo and tandem canoes and kayaks only
  •  All club equipment will need to be cleaned well before being put away at the end of the day.

If you are interested in this event, please complete the registration form attached indicating if you will meet at the club or at the launch site. A copy of your registration will go to  Joe Boyd. This will help him get an idea of numbers and ensure no one gets left behind. Of course, the river is free to all. If you are organized to paddle the river, see you in Duncan at 9 am or at Stoltz between 10 and 11 am.
