Home - The Chesapeake Paddlers Association, Inc.
The CPA offers many diversified activities and benefits providing a way for people to safely enjoy sea kayaking within the Chesapeake Bay region.
The KIP series is for paddlers who want to have a distance challenge, build their skills and knowledge of paddling.
We are having a Kayak & Paddle Workday & Gearswap on April 12th at Truxton Park in Annapolis from 10 am. to 3:00 p.m. Bring your boat or your paddles or both! Volunteers will be on hand to help.
The Votes have been counted & congratulations to the 2015 Club officers.
We have new CPA trip waivers. All participants in CPA sponsored on-water trips and events must sign a legal release form. Trip & event leaders are responsible for collecting signed releases & for returning them to the Club Secretary. Failure to collect, save & forward these waivers may invalidate trip leader coverage under our liability policy.
The CPA has a dedicated space for paddlers seeking or selling gear.
What’s Behind the New Trip Ratings?
After considerable deliberation, the Steering Committee agreed to a new system of trip ratings for CPA trips. This effort stemmed from a Forum post back in February 2014 by Gina Cicotello complaining that there were no CPA trip ratings above “Intermediate” for the more arduous, adventurous kinds of trips that many of our more experienced members organize as peer paddles. Gina’s complaint was that she felt forced to organize these outside CPA since there was no explicit rating for them.
On Mon Mar 30th, 2015: Sunrise is at 6:54 AM EDT, Sunset is at 7:32 PM EDT
Don't forget your PFD, light and whistle!
