2019 Outrigger Summer

Date 2019 May 30-Sep 26 Ical
Days/Times Thursdays 6:30-8:00 P.M.
Location Frenchman's Bay, Pickering (PRCC Trailers) at the end of the road
Address 90 Beachpoint Promenade, Pickering

The Outrigger Program runs Thursday evenings and is designed for adults aged 18+ of all skill levels who are looking for a unique paddling experience.

Outrigger style canoeing originated in Hawaii. The “ama” that is attached to the canoe adds support and stability, allowing the boat to handle rougher water conditions. The OC-6 is a large boat that requires 6 people (5 paddlers, 1 steers-person). Paddlers simultaneously switch sides every 15-20 strokes so they can be more effective over long distances. PRCC’s program offers fun paddling in Frenchman’s Bay or on the high seas of Lake Ontario!

This discipline allows for a team atmosphere but at a smaller scale than dragon boat or war canoe. Outrigger provides great cross-training for competitive dragon boaters looking to spice up their training.

The Outrigger program and the Masters program will run on the same night at the same time. Should there be room in the Outrigger during a practice, Masters paddlers will be given the opportunity to join the Outrigger paddlers in their boat. This will help to maximize full boat practices for the Outrigger and allow Masters paddlers to try a different paddling discipline.


Program runs from May 30 to September 26, 2018 on Thursdays 6:30-8:00 P.M. Note that there may be program disruption August 27 & August 29 due to the Canadian Sprint Canoe Kayak Championships.

Thursdays only (once a week): Cost is $150 including all taxes and fees.

Cost includes equipment but excludes regatta fees.

Participants become members of Pickering Rouge Canoe Club (PRCC) for the year of registration.
