Outrigger canoeing was originally founded in the islands of Hawaii. At PRCC, you can paddle the high seas of Lake Ontario! The attached “ama” on an outrigger canoe adds a base of support that allows the boat to be more stable.
PRCC offers programs using our two OC-6’s which are large boats that require 6 people to paddle them (5 paddlers, 1 steers-person). Paddlers simultaneously switch sides every 15-20 strokes so they can be more effective over long distances. We offer a great program for beginners as well as rental times for those who have an existing team.
This discipline allows for a small team atmosphere. Outrigger can offer great cross-training for competitive dragon boaters looking to spice up their training.
See you next summer!
