Summer OC-1 Orientations

All paddlers using the OC-1 and other club equipment must be individual members of the False Creek Racing Canoe Club and must undergo a formal orientation to the club equipment. They must have club photo id to participate. The main purpose of the orientation is for safety reasons to ensure the paddler can recover from a huli and to ensure the proper care and usage of the boats.

The orientation to the C-Lion is for any member who has not received any previous and recorded orientation on this solo.   Contact admin@fcrcc.com  for link to registration for a trial membership.

The session will cover:

  • Access protocol to the West shed housing the c-lions, in boat booking hours
  • Protocol in returning the solo, washing and returning to the shed
  • How to rig and derig
  • How to carry the solo to the dock with 2 people
  • Covid protocol on the dock etc

Each participant must successfully do a Huli recovery.  Come with a change of clothes, paddle and PFD.  Free parking on Granville island.  The False Creek Community Centre is closed so there is limited access to washroom facilities on GI.
