War canoe racing has a long and cherished history in Canada. Fifteen paddlers, each up on one knee, bring the war canoe to life as they paddle with synchronicity and intensity. Canada is the only country in the world to race war canoe and it is the focal point of the club system.
PRCC combines training in the C-15 war canoe with the C-4 or 4-person canoe. The C-4 requires team work and similar skills as war canoe and is also a favourite at Canadian regattas,. A boat with a smaller number of paddlers gives us flexibility at training practices to work on a variety of skills. Paddlers in U15 Sprint programs have the opportunity to train in the war canoe and C-4.
