Sea Kayaking Awards

The Olympia Sea Kayak Committee Invites interested, qualified paddlers from all Mountaineer Branches to pursue, achieve and be recognized for their Kayaking accomplishments. Through the process of challenging one's own abilities and building skills through experience and practice, we hope to encourage the advancement of kayaking skills within our community.

This series of award incentives is to provide encouragement for leaders to schedule and lead trips throughout the many regions and waters of Washington, and to encourage participation by all club paddlers.
