The Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club would like to thank everyone who has contribuited to our programs. The small contributions received at our events from thousands of individuls sustain our programs and activities.  

The dramatic growth of the paddlesport industry is seen in the increase of family canoeing and recreational kayaking. This, coupled with increasing media exposure for the sport, is creating unique advertising, marketing and promotional opportunities.

Paddling is a "green" sport with an inspiring outdoor and clean environmental image. Although the sport is receiving increasing public recognition, it is free of commercial and sponsor clutter.

Our assets include high-profile, professionally managed events and articulate, attractive and successful athletes. A relationship with The Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club can enhance a sponsor's ability to effectively market products or services and drive sales.

  • American Canoe Association
