35th Annual Delmarva Paddlers Retreat
 October 11-13, 2024

Delmarva 2023 is in the books.
Thank You All
Wow! What a weekend!

We enjoyed great weather, good food and ever deepening friendships. Every year we are delighted by everyone's positive attitude and eagerness to share and learn. Delmarva is a wonderful community. This year was made extra special by our extra special guests.

Thanks to Anders and Jannie, Dubside and Tim Gallaway (welcome to the Delmarva family, Tim!) for their going above and beyond in every way to make the event great.   


We're especially grateful to Paninnguaq Korneliussen for joining us this year. With her help, we were able to give credit where credit is due by thanking her grandfather, Emmanuel Korneliussen, for his contributions to the creation of modern sea kayaking. 

Seven qajaqs and nine paddles (thanks, Don Beale!) were made, lots of new skills were learned and our community grew with more than a few new faces. Practice what you have learned, pay it forward and we'll see you next time!


See you on the water.

The Delmarva Paddlers Retreat is an annual gathering of Greenland-style sea kayakers on the western shore of Rehoboth Bay in Lewes, DE. There we gather to celebrate the origins of kayaking and to hone traditional kayaking techniques and skills. Whether you are looking to learn your first kayak roll, or develop an understanding of advanced traditional techniques, the Delmarva Paddlers Retreat is the place to do it.
