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



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 and develop paddling fitness (no paddling experience necessary).

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