"Partner of the Month"

Bel Haven Paddlesports

Bel Haven Paddlesports has been a sponsor of our annual Mirror Lake Championships since the races began in 2011. In 2013, we introduced Canoe & Kayak Skills and Safety Classes to the community which became an instant hit. We were able to offer these classes due in part to the great deal we received from Bel Haven Paddlesports on used canoes and kayaks. Additionally, the customer service they provide is outstanding!
