FCRCC Anniversary Pub Night – April 22, 2018

The more you know about the False Creek Racing Canoe Club, the more proud you are to wear its name.  The FCRCC started back in 1985 with the first Dragon boat team in North America.  We officially received our Society status in 1988 so that is our excuse for have a 30th Anniversary party.  The pub night will include a video session which will overview some of the magic moments of the origin and the continued success of the club.  Here is what we would love to see: Previous club members and hard working Executive members to come back for […]

FCRCC Novice OC6 is back again for the season

This is a co-ed program open to adults of all ages, and is coached by experienced FCRCC outrigger paddlers.

Practices are held Mondays and Wednesday from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm, leaving from the FCRCC Burrard site.  Practices are twice each week for 4 weeks. Warning, the more practices you attend, the more quickly you will become addicted to outrigger paddling!
