Home - The Chesapeake Paddlers Association, Inc.

The CPA offers many diversified activities and benefits providing a way for people to safely enjoy sea kayaking within the Chesapeake Bay region.


The Chesapeake Paddlers Association is a volunteer organization, and the people who volunteer the most are the elected officers: The Coordinator, Treasurer, Membership Secretary, and the Steering Committee members. Now is the time to tell us who you think should play an active part in steering the club’s activities. Nominate someone who you think will help play an active role over the next year to vote on issues, create fun activities, and keep the participation of the club...

The CPA has a dedicated space for paddlers seeking or selling gear.
Mix and mingle with fellow paddlers. Talk about kayaking events, paddling trips, gear, and much, much more.

Clean Water and Clear Opportunity

Clean Water—I just got back from a week paddling the Bay…the Narragansett Bay, not our own Chesapeake. While they are both estuaries, the compare and contrast is an interesting one.

Clear Opportunity—Managing CPA takes a lot of work, all of which is done by volunteers.  Nominations are open until October 1 for ALL CPA officers, but at the core of the volunteers is the backbone of CPA governance, the Steering Committee. You can nominate people for all officer and SC positions, and vote on them by the time our Annual Meeting rolls around on Sunday, November 1 at CBC HQ in Annapolis.

Thanks to Suzanne Farace for the picture of me on Narragansett Bay.
