Don’t forget to take your canoe

Passage on the Passage this Saturday

The 6.5-kilometre, round-trip passage has drawn between 100 and 150 paddlers across a wide range of ages and styles

Don’t forget to take your canoe, kayak, rowboat or whatever human-powered vessel you’ve got to Ostler Park this Saturday for the annual Discovery Passage Passage.

The 6.5-kilometre, round-trip passage has drawn between 100 and 150 paddlers across a wide range of ages and styles. There is no entry fee and no prizes. Participants paddle across to the Cape Mudge beach, where community members host a welcoming ceremony centred around the village’s cedar great canoe. Afterward, paddlers make the return journey to Campbell River on the tide.

All participants must wear an approved personal floatation device and follow Coast Guard safety regulations. The Coast Guard and several boats from the Campbell River Yacht Club will travel along for safety and support. Paddlers set off at 11 a.m. To sign up, visit www.incampbellriver.net or call 250-830-4056.
