The Organizations We Support
A member-based, national nonprofit organization, The American Canoe Association, serves the broader paddling public by providing education related to all aspects of paddling. It also provides stewardship support to help protect paddling environments and sanctions programs and events to promote paddlesport competition and recreation. We proudly guide, teach, and train under their banner.
Also known as Save the Sound, this non-profit is dedicated to protecting and improving the land, air, and water of Connecticut and Long Island Sound. They work hard to keep our paddling grounds clean. We participate in their beach clean-ups and champion their mission.
An annual event, conducted in the autumn and for those comfortable in open waters, The Lighthouse to Lighthouse Race is a 7 or 14-mile race for any seaworthy, human-powered craft. Launching from Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk Connecticut, the course takes advantage of Pecks Ledge lighthouse in the east, the southern perimeter of the Norwalk Islands, and Greens Ledge Lighthouse in the west, to create one of the more unique races in New England. We are proud to sponsor the race and to take part in the competition.
