The Providence Community Boating Center has announced that kayaking will be added to their programming this spring!
The simplicity of kayaking as an entry-level sport for anyone makes it attractive to get outside, get moving, and embrace a healthy lifestyle.
FREE recreational kayaking is now included with adult memberships! Paddle one day as a trial/guest member, or all season, + FREE guest! We want you to paddle with a friend, so you get up to 2 kayaks/ trip.
New to paddling? Join us for some basic instruction and a guided tour. FREE guided “RiverRomp” tours offer youth & families a healthy, active alternative to TV, video, and other indoor, static activities.
CBC will, of course, still be offering recreational sailing and sailing lessons this spring, but now a membership will also offer kayak usage and kayaking lessons!
An adult membership for the entire season costs only $195*, and basically gives you access to boats 7 days a week – with no boat rental fees and no maintenance obligations.
Only in town for a day, or worried about commitment? CBC offers a one-day pass for $75 – a great way to spend an afternoon before checking out a Waterfire.
*packages and discounts available, too!

It’s been 3 years since the CBC saw a sunny forecast for the annual Renaissance Regatta, but today looks like a lucky day.
Every year, the CBC tries to raise money to pay for its youth outreach and program initiatives by holding a regatta event. Companies, organizations, and individuals are invited to sponsor a team of sailors to compete in a series of sailing races during the day. Additionally, items are donated to CBC for a silent auction, and the public is invited to come cheer on the racers, participate in the auction, and go for a sailboat ride.
See you there!
