outrigger Outrigger Club

Welcome to Patterson Lakes Canoe Club

Our club consists of active members of all ages who paddle in a variety of craft, waters and competitions.
The club has members and coaches keen to assist anyone interested in starting or improving their kayaking.
Regular training and safety skills coaching is available from qualified personnel.

2016 was the club's 50th anniversary (1966 - 2016)


Come and Try Sessions

The club can supply boats and safety equipment for prospective paddlers of any ability.
Our regular 'Come & Try Sessions' consist of FOUR sessions for a donation of $80. ($40 juniors over 12.).

If you subsequently join the club after the 'Come and Try', this fee will be deducted from the joining fee.

This allows you to try out various disciplines (touring, white-water, marathon, sprint etc.)
and thereby work out what kind of boat and discipline suits you.

(Please note there is a short break over winter and sessions resume from 1st October).

Come and try forms are available here for downloading and printing.

You can join the club by completeing your details here in the Australian Canoeing database, who will forward your details to us at PLCC.

These forms should be completely filled out, printed and returned to the club with your payment prior to your first 'Come & Try Session'

Check out our 'Come & Try' Schedule at the bottom of this page.

The membership fees for 2017-2018 are here.

Note that PLCC members agree to abide by (i)PLCC Rules (ii) Code of Conduct and (iii) Boat rack policy.


Regular Time Trials are held for the club on a monthly basis, to allow paddlers to test themselves against their own clock times, the elements and each other in a friendly and spirited environment. Results are logged and can be accessed from the web site at any time to chart progress. - See Fitness Paddlers Australia for details
