A big thank you to Ron Chin for leading another successful Novice OC6 season.  We will be back in 2020 for the months of May through August so if you’ve never paddled in an outrigger, or lack confidence in your paddling abilities, the False Creek Racing Canoe Club Novice Program welcomes you to learn basics of paddling technique, boat safety and outrigger culture!

This is a co-ed program open to adults of all ages, and is coached by experienced FCRCC outrigger paddlers. Through this program, you will learn outrigger paddling technique (no paddling experience necessary), develop paddling fitness and be introduced to Hawaiian culture.

It is a lot of fun! Once you have completed the novice session, we encourage you to advance into one of the FCRCC Outrigger Programs.

Practices are held Mondays and Wednesdays, 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm, for four weeks. launching from the FCRCC Burrard site. (WARNING: the more practices you attend, the more quickly you will become addicted to outrigger paddling!)

To register for a four-week-long Novice Six-person (OC-6) program (May, June, July or August), watch for information in the Spring of 2020.

To participate in the Novice OC-6 program you must be a member of the FCRCC for the month you are participating in the program ($60). This is included in the $80 fee. If you continue on in the program for more than one month, you will be asked to upgrade your membership to an individual member. The $60 one-month trial membership fee will be credited towards the full membership fee.

The cost for the Novice OC-6 program is $80.00 plus GST.

We look forward to seeing you on the water – ALOHA!!
