Outing Requirements

We are all here to have fun, socialize, and learn from each other.

We are all volunteers organizing these events, so cooperation is paramount to a successful club.

The trip coordinator has the right to refuse anyone they feel is not prepared for the outing or not having the correct equipment or skill level required. Contact the organizer if you have any questions.

Proper boat for the conditions of the outing. 

Your boat should have 2 sealed bulkheads or air bags on any trip on the Detroit River or surrounding lakes.

Proper clothing for air and water temperature. Never wear cotton on the water.

A Spray Skirt is highly recommended and very close to mandatory on the Detroit River or any lake outings.

Proper fitting PFD worn at all times (Canadian Approved if you are Canadian)

Sounding Device

Throw Rope (15M)


Working waterproof flashlight if paddling close to sunset or sunrise

360deg white light if paddling at night.
