Join me for an evening of canoe paddling. I will rent ONE boat (I can only rent one in my name) at Harbourfront Centre and we will head to Toronto Islands. After exploring as many canals as possible, we will return back by 8pm.

The event will proceed if the Canoe Centre assesses the weather conditions as Green.

You should be able to comfortably paddle the canoe, at least at the bow. You agree to abide by the Canoe Centre and TOC rules, including wearing PFD at all times while in a boat.

Please NOTE your experience on the sign-up form (e.g., previous TOC canoeing events), otherwise your sign-up will be stuck in the wait list.

If you are a regular at HCKC, have its FPC discount, AND are proficient paddling a canoe at the stern, we can arrange for more boats to rent. Please mention this possibility in the NOTES.
