Fort Langley Canoe Club
Fort Langley Canoe Club is a non-profit group of people who enjoy paddling competitively and recreationally in four main classes of boats – Canoe & Kayak, Dragonboat, Voyageur and Outrigger canoe. We started out as a Sprint Racing Club with youth competing in flat water racing. We continue with youth and adult flatwater canoeing and kayaking for all levels from recreational paddlers to international competitors.
We have several voyageur canoes which we use to re-enact the historic arrival of people to Fort Langley during the “Brigade Days” every summer, as well as for numerous other community events. We have regular voyageur canoe recreational paddles throughout the year. With the introduction of dragonboats, we have seen substantial growth in the number of competitive paddlers in our club. We now have dragonboat teams competing in regattas regionally, nationally and internationally.
Our club also has three six-person, and three one-person outrigger canoes for our members to use and are looking forward to the development of that portion of our club as well. We paddle on the Bedford Channel with staging areas from the Paddlesport Dock (kayaks, racing canoes and voyageur canoes), Riverside Dock (outrigger canoes) and the Canoe Dock, east of the bridge, (dragonboats).
