Kayaking Calendar: lessons, clinics and events

Please review the upcoming Kayak lessons, clinics and events, and sign up for those in which you are interested.

In order to manage our costs, we must do our best to fill the scheduled lessons.  If we don't have enough registered participants a week before the lesson, we may have to cancel and re-register you in a later session.

    Gerald Island Invasive Species Removal. Kayaks can be rented for a nominal fee for this BCMT event. You are responsible for transportation of the kayak to a suitable launching point to cross to Gerald Island. You must register for the event with BCMT. Let the Kayak Director know via Club Locarno Slack that you'd like to rent and for which days. 

    All trip planning and coordination will be done on the Club Locarno Slack channel - #kayak_bcmt_gerald_island

    Kayaks must be rented in order to use them overnight or for trips that don't originate at the JSCA. Please confirm rental availability by contacting the Kayak Director at kayaking@clublocarno.com or on the Club Locarno slack channel. 

    Double kayaks are available to one member and a guest. You take full responsibility for loss and damage when you rent gear from the club.  More details on rentals can be found here.
    Rentals are on a first-come, first served basis according to registration date.  Lessons and other club events have priority over rentals, so please check the calendar for scheduled lessons and checkouts when planning your trip. Boats cannot be reserved ahead of time so you should plan on picking up the boat(s) of choice either at dusk of the evening prior to rental or early on the day of the rental (particularly important if you are relying on a double). Ensure you have appropriate gear to transport the boats safely.  There are some foam blocks and straps in the kayak shed.

    Craft signout: When you pickup your rental boat, you must sign out the boat under Rentals on the Craft Signout including the date and estimated time of return. Please do NOT sign out a rental craft until you pick it up.

    Once the Kayak Director has confirmed your rental you will be  you will be given a rental code to complete your booking.
