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), and develop paddling fitness. Please note that this course is on Thursdays from 7:30 pm to 9 pm and Sundays at 1 pm to 2:30 pm from August 21st to September 18th. Sunsets occur during evening session times; headlamps will be required for evening sessions. The first session on Sunday, August 21st will start earlier at 12:30 pm. All sessions launch from the FCRCC Burrard site at the end of Whyte Avenue. (WARNING: the more practices you attend, the more quickly you will become addicted to outrigger paddling!) Participants do not need to be club members for this course, but will need to become club members to continue paddling after the course and join a team.
