The funding effort for the paddlers dock is being led by the Gig Harbor Canoe and Kayak Racing Team (GHCKRT), which is committed to coaching children, para-athletes, and adults in the sport of paddling. Though the local nationally-ranked team will use the dock and its facilities, none of the money raised will go directly to the team. Instead, the paddlers dock will benefit all of Gig Harbor by growing the local paddling community, increasing access to the waterfront, and giving everyone a chance to learn and compete in a safe and appropriate environment. To make long-term maintenance viable for the city, which will own the dock, the team has committed to renting half of the boat storage space for its teams and camps.
