Each spring the Fraser Valley Paddling Club opens its doors to anybody and everybody that would like to try their hand at the sport of Dragon Boating and Outrigger Canoeing.

Our free introductory lessons will teach you boat safety, equipment terminology and basic paddling techniques.  You will then get to spend some time on the water in one of our three dragon boats and/or on an outrigger canoe.

The lessons usually last approximately one hour in length. Once the lesson is over there will be a short debriefing where you can ask questions, talk with the other paddlers or ask about our other programs.

Dates and times for the Open Paddles are as follows:

Sunday May 6th , 2018 - Municipal Dock - Harrison Lake Starting at 11:30 am

Saturday, May 12th , 2018 - Municipal Dock - Harrison Lake - Starting at 11:30 am

This year for the first time we would like to also invite our new “open paddlers” to come and try a “race” during our fun club event, which will be held on Sunday, May 27th. This event will be a very casual, yet exciting way to get a true taste of dragon boat and outrigger canoe racing.
