    The Stikine River is one of British Columbia's last truly wild rivers, running more than 600 km from its headwaters in the Spatsizi Plateau to the Pacific Ocean in Alaska. In August this year, 3 friends and their 3 sons successfully paddled 300 km of this remote and beautiful river through class II and III rapids. What was required to prepare for this trip in terms of building skills, competency, and confidence for both the adults and teens? And, how did it all work out? Join us for an exciting night of stories and photos.

    “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).
