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.

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.
