What we're about

WHO WE ARE:

• A community of kayakers, primarily from Northeast Ohio... who desire to be active year-round.

• Devoted to Safety & Education first, but always seeking Fun & Adventure.

• Inclusive of all kayakers (beginners, intermediate, advanced) who wish to advance their kayak skills & to upgrade their gear.

• Where do we paddle? Wherever there is water!! Lakes, rivers, creeks, canals, etc.

• Activities are planned for both time on the water and time socializing in other settings.

• Opportunities for educational & training programs will be offered... both in the classroom and on the water from other organizations. Varied topics will be covered to help further your kayaking skills, regardless of your current level.

• Generally, events are organized right here in Northeast Ohio. However on occasion, we will expand our horizons to include surrounding states & even overnight trips (camping or hotel)

• Committed to collaboration with ODNR, ACA, USPS, local Metro Parks & outfitters, and also other boating groups that are in alignment with our goals.

HOUSEKEEPING RULES:

• You should always follow Ohio boating laws & regulations. Safety is always a priority.
