Paddle Boards and Kayaks

BQYC has 2 kayaks and 2 stand-up paddle boards (SUP) that can be rented by a member or a guest of a member for $5 per hour.  The cost for the rental will be charged to the members' account.   The watercraft are meant for use in the Bay of Quinte and not meant to be towed or taken away from the club on a members boat.

The boards and kayaks can be reserved by sending an email 48 hours in advance to bartender@bqyc.ca otherwise the boards are available on a first come first served basis.  Reservations will be recorded in a date book that is stored in the deck box.

Here are the details on how to access this service.  It is a self serve model that is based on the honor system so that the equipment can be used when the bar is not open.
