The Council of watersheds in the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region (COBAVER-VS) in partnership with the Caisse Desjardins de Vaudreuil-Soulanges, invites you to the second edition of its annual event, the "Descent in a canoe-kayak on the Beaudette River " to be held Saturday, April 16, 2016. Recall that last year, in spring 2015, 40 people paddled the river in the first edition. The COBAVER-VS is working towards turning this event into an annual tradition for the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region. The 20km course begins at Glen Nevis in Ontario and ends in the village core of Rivière-Beaudette. Keep in mind that the Beaudette River is an excellent river for beginners in paddle sports (canoe and kayak), because its slope is low and its rapids are at a very easy level. The activity on April 16 is for people who are 12 and older, who can range from beginners to experts.

Two departures are offered on the same course 20 km (10 am for recreational paddling and at 11 am for a friendly competition). The COBAVER-VS will also offer low renting prices for canoes for kayaks, however stock is limited (participants are encouraged to bring their own boats). Registration costs $10, which includes a snack upon arrival as well as a shuttle bus for the return to their vehicles. Interested parties are invited to register before April 14 by email at or by calling at 450-451-0755.
