Introduction to outrigger for more information

In 2014 we plan to pick up where we left off with our program development. We have purchased a couple of new outrigger canoes (an OC1 and OC2) and with all of the new recruits in 2013 we intend to get to more races. Club fun regatta's proved to be very popular so we will add a few of those to our schedule along with a number of away regatta's.

Fee structure for 2016 is as follows:

First year outrigger program: $215, this includes membership

Regular Outrigger program: General membership fees plus $175.

In addition, an annual fee of $25 paid to CORA, the National governing body, is required for any paddler attending a CORA race.

We encourage new members to participate at the Recreation OC6 sessions on Wednesday evenings and Saturday morning to learn the basic skills in the 6 man boat. Once you are comfortable in the OC6 you may move onto the 1 and 2 person outrigger canoes. An orientation session from Lynda or a volunteer coach is required. Once you sign up we will email regular updates on training sessions and all program activities to keep you updated.

Practice times; May through September 2016

Once you join the program we will send out weekly email updates to confirm practices and other information. The general outline is as follows.
