CPA has new TRIP RATINGS Read them and start thinking in terms of the new ratings for trips.


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.
Mix and mingle with fellow paddlers. Talk about kayaking events, paddling trips, gear, and much, much more.

Leadership and Trips
Spring, that beautiful 2 week period that flys by in the Mid-Atlantic, has given way to full-on sweltering Summer and the paddling season is in full swing. Many of you have been out on the water at Piracies during the week, and at trips to Assateague, KIPP, Piscataway Creek, making the Potomac Passage, at Chestertown, Marshall Hall and the Pomonkey, on Rocky Gorge and DC under moonlight, and on the Pax at Mount Calvert and the Upper Magothy and St. Michaels. Lots of CPA paddlers supported our kayaking community at demo days on Spa Creek and Matapeake Beach. That’s a lot of activity, just in the month of May! [More]
