Most Sundays from mid-September to late April we organize walks in the afternoons.
The walks always start at 1400hrs and last between 1.25 and 2 hours and are graded as to difficulty (a one booter is dead easy, a four booter is the most difficult we attempt) so you can decide if the walk is suitable for you.
Friends, relatives and dogs are more than welcome to accompany members on these walks.
Most of the routes are located in Saanich and in the northern part of the Peninsula but, occasionally, we venture further afield into Oak Bay, Victoria, Langford or Metchosin. And, of course, if we’re close to the clubhouse many walkers turn up there after the walk!
We have been running these walks for about nine years now and they’ve proved to be very popular. Not only do members get a bit of exercise but it is a great way to stay in touch with the club during the off-season for boating. Also, it is an opportunity to get to know other members and to explore parts of the Greater Victoria area with which you may not be familiar.
Although the Sunday walks will show up on the Event Calendar, we communicate the details by email a few days before the scheduled walk.
If you wish to be included on the email list, go to your “Profile Page”, scroll down to “Club Interests” and put a check mark in the “Walking” selection. (Don’t forget to save your changes)
If you think that you might want to join one of the walks, or want to find out a bit more about them, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator
So, join the walking group for a chance to keep up with old friends, make new ones and get some exercise in the bargain!
