SK102, CPA's on-water skills clinic, is April 24th-26th this year. Pre-registration is open.
SK101 is an on land seminar on the basics of sea kayaking.

Pool sessions have been posted for Williamsburg and Fairlands. At this point, availability seems to be limited at pools around the area. Check here for any dates or efforts to coordinate indoor pool sessions.

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.

Planning and Paddling Pirates

Now that the holidays are over, it’s time for arm-chair paddlers to turn your minds to the upcoming paddling season.  With the trip planning meetings coming up in February (Saturday the 7th in Virginia and Sunday the 8th in Maryland), NOW is the time to be thinking about where you want to paddle in the upcoming season.
