JULY August Community Whitewater Paddles

Date 2022 Jul 10-Aug 14 Ical
Days/Times SUNDAY 2.30-4.30pm
Location Chilliwack River
Address Vedder Bridge, Chilliwack River

Join the CCE Paddling Club for FREE adult-oriented instructor-led community whitewater paddles! Meet new paddling friends and enjoy a fun, social paddle on the river. We will start on the lower sections of the river and work up, according to the river levels and the skills/confidence of the group. Youth must be competent paddlers, and must be accompanied by an adult who is also a competent paddler.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE : 5pm the day before

THIS IS NOT A LESSON. You must be able to take care of yourself on the river to join this group i.e. you are a competent grade 2 (or higher) whitewater paddler and you can:

1. Paddle in a straight line and avoid/ paddle away from river hazards

2. Enter and exit eddies without tipping

3. Calmly exit your boat if you tip - or roll your boat. You don't need to have a bomb-proof roll but we want to avoid swims and rescues 

If you don't have a roll you must paddle well below your paddling ability to avoid swims. If you don't already have these skills PLEASE take some lessons Your instructors will let you know when you are ready to join the community whitewater night.

1. There is no charge but you MUST be a club member, register (and pay) here: and you MUST pre-register for each whitewater night you wish to attend.

2. We strongly encourage you to use your own equipment. We can provide equipment for a small fee.

3. Maximum group size is 8, so register early to avoid disappointment!

MEMBERSHIP (Adult $45, Youth $25) Drop in membership also available.
