 If you would like to sign up for the e-mail list that sends out notices for upcoming trips, send an e-mail to StoneFoxFarm@juno.com and write "Join Flatwater list" in the subject line. 

Note: Inflatable PFDs and inflatable kayaks are not acceptable for paddling on RICKA Flatwater trips or Blackstone Valley Paddle Club trips.

Our trip organizers have the right to put restrictions on their trips. They may require specific boat lengths or boat types, spray skirts, headlamps etc. The trip may specify experienced paddlers only. Please make your decision to participate accordingly. This is for the safety and enjoyment of the entire group.

Please review the Safety Signals 

Any paddle sport is an assumed risk sport. Some aspects of canoeing and kayaking involve the risk  of serious injury or death. The Rhode Island Canoe and Kayak Association, although safety conscious, cannot guarantee your personal safety in club activities.
