The Hood River Outrigger Canoe Club is happy to be offering the beginner Friday afternoon canoe paddle time. We have designed this session to be an introduction to our club and this is your invitation to join us. We have the following dates open and encourage you to RSVP early (it's not a drop-in session).
The boats leave the dock at 5:00PM. Our lead steers &/or coach will be on hand earlier to get people signed in and discuss basic stroke technique. We paddle for about one hour. There is no cost but if you feel like it, please make a $10 donation. The money raised pays for club loaner paddles.
We meet at the South Marina Dock just West of DMV. Please park along the fence. Bring some clothes that are warm but able to get wet. Expect to get splashed but not soaked.
- To be able to swim.
- Bring and wear a life jacket.
- Let me know if you need to borrow a paddle.
- Sign the waiver before paddling.
- $10 for the donation.
- A smile and good attitude!
- A beer for afterwards is acceptable.
HROCC supplies the boat, loaner paddles as well as a few willing and experienced members to help instruct and make sure the boat is safe.

THANKS and hope to see YOU on the water.
