YPRC Runs on Volunteer Energy

Happy New Year!

In less than six months, we will be back on the water offering guided paddles, skills classes and weekly member BBQs, as well as preparing for our annual Manhattan Circumnavigation and much, much more.

All of this is powered by volunteer energy. Thank you to all already give their time to help make our club amazing.

We would love more members to participate in shaping and organizing our programs, enhancing our communications, caring for our fleet and boathouse, preparing for the future and ensuring that we are always mindful of personal and club safety and diversity.

If you are interested in becoming more involved, please click on the below form let us know more about your skills and interests.
We know there are stages in our lives where volunteering is not possible. If that is your situation, know that we understand. Each one of us is a valued part of YPRC.

Cold Water Paddling Workshop
Cold water can kill. Always dress for the water temperature - no exceptions. Learn how at our Cold Water Workshop led by Phil Giller, Bob Morrow and others on Saturday, January 29, 10 am - noon.  

It will (hopefully) be a combination of in-person at Beczak and live streamed. Register with vicecomm@yprc.org

Thank you, YPRC!
Thank you YPRC members for volunteering at Untermyer Gardens Grand Holiday Illumination! And thank you to Jack Gilman for organizing our participation. This year they had 22,000 visitors! We helped make this winter just a little brighter! ✨
