A multi-disciplinary Vancouver-based paddling club on Granville Island


Kupuna = Revered Elder (Hawaiian)

This group of “Golden Masters” (age 55+) have been paddling out of FCRCC for about seven years. We practice twice a week – Wednesday morning and Friday afternoon.

Our primary objective is to improve our fitness and skill level, to allow us to compete at a high level for our age group. Leading our training is our Head Coach, Patti Lawson. When Patti is not available, Kamini Jain fills in

Although most of the Kupunas have paddled for several years, we are most anxious to welcome new paddlers in our age group to this very active sport. You will get the guidance you need from our excellent coaches and soon you will be on the race start line.

Please contact Rick Walkey (rwalkey@shaw.ca, 604-925-2513) for more info.

Here is a short video clip of the Kupunas at a workout.
