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.

    • Sunshine Coast

    The Sunshine Coast has many possible destinations and on this trip we will consult with the group to chose between the following destinations:

    • Thormaby Island - Farm Bay: Proposed launching from Coopers Green. There is a crossing of less than a 1 km to Thormaby Island.  One proposed campsite, Farm Bay, is an undeveloped camp site without a pit toilet.  True wild camping!
    • Sechelt Inlet up to Halfway which is a large established campsite with a pit toilet and a group fire pit. Sechelt Inlet has a wonderful variety of wild and settled coast line. 

    Pre-requisites: Experience with Level 1 trips, comfortable with shorter crossings and winds up to 15-20 knots.

    Level: Level 2
    Kayak Trip Rating System

    We will be limited to 6 paddlers, so if more apply to join we will select names at random on June 18th.

    We will need cars to transport kayaks. Please indicate if you have a car available to use for the trip and how many kayaks you can transport.

    Ferry reservations on the Langdale ferry will be required.

    Any questions about the trip, please contact Robert at commodore@clublocarno.com or Barbara at Membership@clublocarno.com

    All new members of the kayak fleet are required to take a lesson, or demonstrate their existing skills in a Kayak Checkout, before they can sign out club boats.

    This checkout is for experienced paddlers who can demonstrate a competent solo recovery with a paddle float, and a floating launch and land.  If you don't already have these skills, please sign up for one of our lessons instead.

    Please register as space is limited, and so we can email you more details.

    Until social distancing rules are lifted by the BC Government we will not be including the assisted rescue in the checkout.  Members will not be able to take guests out until they have taken a free rescue clinic after restrictions are lifted.

    Please be aware that Covid-19 protocols are in effect at Jericho Sailing Centre and Club Locarno.
