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 KIP series is for paddlers who want to have a distance challenge, build their skills and knowledge of paddling.
The Votes have been counted & congratulations to the 2015 Club officers.
We have new CPA trip waivers. All participants in CPA sponsored on-water trips and events must sign a legal release form. Trip & event leaders are responsible for collecting signed releases & for returning them to the Club Secretary. Failure to collect, save & forward these waivers may invalidate trip leader coverage under our liability policy.
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.
Teach Up—Clean Up—Gear Up
