Open Paddling Schedule (year round)

  • Tuesday: arrive at 8:30 for 9:00 am launch
  • Thursday: arrive at 8:30 for 9:00 am launch
  • Saturday: arrive at 7:30 for 8:00 am launch

Our scheduled weekly paddles are open to club members and experienced guest paddlers. All paddlers are expected to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled launch time and be prepared to paddle. Actual time on the water is typically between one and one and one-half hour. With prep and stowing that’s about 2 hours. First-time paddlers are advised to participate in an orientation paddle on a Sunday before attempting an Open Paddle. Experienced visitors and guests must submit completed waivers (unless we have one on file) and pay a $5 insurance fee.

Recreational and Novice Orientation Schedule (year round)

  • Sunday: arrive at 8:30 for 9:00 am launch

Sunday’s are set aside for orientation of first-time paddlers who are considering joining the club. Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to scheduled launch time to allow for paper work and coaching. Wear appropriate attire, bring a bottle of water and a change of clothes. Be prepared to get wet. Actual time on the water is about one hour. With signups, prep and stowing that’s about 2 hours.

New guests and novice paddlers should review Terms and Conditions prior to participating. First-time guest paddlers must complete a VOCC insurance waiver and sign in to the Guest Log. For first-timers, our normal $5.00 guest insurance fee is waived for the first paddle. After that, returning guests and visitors must pay the insurance fee prior to paddling. Visiting paddlers from canoe clubs offering reciprocal privileges are exempt. You can download the forms from the Terms and Conditions page, fill them out and bring them with you to save time. Minors of at least 13 years of age who can meet fitness requirements must have completed the VOCC Minor Waiver and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who has completed a VOCC Adult Waiver.
