Join us for Atlantic Canada’s premier sea paddling get-together, an opportunity for all those active in this growing sport to meet, mingle and exchange ideas. There will be slide presentations, safety demos and updates in this continually evolving sport. Most of all, we will be on the water. On Saturday we will visit the offshore islands (and the seals and sea birds) during a choice of trips of varying lengths and difficulties. We finish the day with a traditional church supper. Sunday is devoted to improving your kayaking skills with sessions on paddling strokes, rescues, navigation, "rock hopping" and an introduction to surfing. Again this year are both pre and post meeting clinics. On Friday, June 12, there will be a tidal current session on the Shubenacadie tidal river (Bay of Fundy) and on Monday, June 15, there will be a surfing session at Clam Harbour Beach (both sessions are separate registrations with limited space, extra fee applies).

   Come along and discover one of the best paddling destinations in eastern Canada. There will also be kayak demos and a swap and sale session for those with kayaking gear they wish to exchange or sell.
