To be eligible to participate in Club activities, members must be fully vaccinated for COVID per the CDC guidelines
At this time, members are not required to receive a booster dosage, however we strongly recommend all members consider it to be optimally protected against COVID-19 and its variants.
If you don’t meet these requirements, regardless of your age, you are NOT fully vaccinated. Keep taking all precautions until you are fully vaccinated.

Questions are bound to come up. Here is a link to a list of the most common questions and answers.
Q: Why aren’t we allowing unvaccinated members to participate on water?
- To maximize safety of club members; CDC guidelines support fully vaccinated people interacting without masks or social distancing
- Wasabi Helms have determined that social distancing on the boats by staggering seating is not safe, especially during summer months with rough water
- We do not have the tools or infrastructure to ask coaches, helms and captains to manage vaccine status and/or negative COVID test results at each practice for each attendee.
- Wasabi continues to monitor CDC and OHA guidelines and will welcome unvaccinated paddlers back on water as soon as it is safe
