April 28th 2020
Due to the COVID19 crisis, OC subscriptions are temporarily suspended. We are awaiting for the directives and the decision of the city of Montreal to know if the practice of the Outrigger will be possible for the 2020 season.
What is an Outrigger (OC) ?
The OC is a long, narrow boat equipped with a pendulum (AMA) that facilitates balance and makes it very stable. There are boats with one, two and six seats. The paddles used have an angle and are rounded in shape. The OC technique is very similar to that of the dragon boat. It is also possible to use a dragon boat paddle.
The OC is a boat that is perfectly suited for beginners who have never paddled before. Thus, at your own pace and in a safe way, you will gradually learn the joys of sliding and the required individual technique.
For advanced paddlers, you will find in the OC the opportunity to increase your individual technique and fitness by learning to “slide” an individual boat.The outrigger is also known to be a very good testing tool, an excellent way to test the individual performance of dragon boat paddlers.
