Browning Island's Canada Day Paddle Past … back for Year 2 


The Spring floods are waning, the sun is shining, and plans are afoot for the Second Annual Browning Island Canada Day Paddle Past!  
On Monday July 1 (rain date Tuesday July 2), choose your non-motorized vessel of choice, and set out alone, with guests, or neighbours. You choose whether you go past five cottages or all the way around, in either direction, greeting other islanders and friends with Canada Day greetings.


You are encouraged to dress in red and white, plus PFD.  When you need to fill your reusable water bottle, you may stop at one of our four water stationsWater stations will be open from  8:30 a.m., until 10:30 a.m. The participating stations will each be displaying a Canadian flag, approximately 8 1/2 x 11” on their dock. 

Members and friends will be encouraged to take photos of the canoes, paddleboards, kayaks, skiffs, sailboats, and rowboats going by and then submit them to Anne Riley to create a collage for the AGM, the website, or the newsletter. 

This is an inter-generational and non-competitive day, for maximum participation and pleasure. Come out and celebrate Canada.  

Please  phone or email your intention to participate, to give an idea of numbers. 

See you on the water,
