Charlottesville paddlers



This site will be retired in early 2020. The annual River Race is now managed by the Rivanna Conservation Alliance and this group's Rivanna River Paddlers Facebook Group has proven to be the most effective way to build this community of Charlottesville-area paddlers.


About us:
We are an informal group of canoe and kayak paddlers from the Charlottesville, VA area and our skills range from novice to competitive paddler. You may have heard us called, "Rivanna Paddlers" since the Rivanna River is our local recreational body of water. We support our annual Rivanna River Canoe & Kayak Race.

We welcome anyone of any age and skill level who may be interested in taking their paddling to the next level, but donít know where to begin. We meet for recreational paddles every Wednesday evening, assembly time ~5:30-6pm from May through October starting at the boat ramp at the end of Woodburn Rd, Charlottesville. Come join us for a relaxing float on the reservoir with good food and good company Wednesdays at ~5:30-6pm launch. Contact dave [at}cville paddlers -dot-com with any questions.
