Course Description

Outrigger Canoeing is quickly growing in popularity around the world and is perfectly suited to the warm and scenic waters of the Hong Kong coastline. Due to high demand the Rowing & Paddle Sports section is putting on an introduction course for outrigger. Our 6-hour introduction course split over 2 sessions - theory in the evening that gives with you what you need to know (basic boat types, handling and rigging, paddling technique), and practical one day in the weekend that enables you to do some paddling and learn launching and landing, and relevant water safety practices.   Please make sure you can attend both sessions.

The Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club has an active and competitve paddling team, who race frequently in Hong Kong , and througout the Asia Pacific region.  This year they plan to race in Hawaii, Palau and Singapore as well as local races.  Come learn the basics and find out more about joining our squad!
