Lantau Boat Club Paddling Section (previously known as LIOCC) was formed in March 2005 and has about 60 members, mostly residents of Discovery Bay.
We have five OC6s (six-person canoes) – four are Bradley Lightning outriggers (Va’a Pake Nui, which means “Strong Chinese Boat,” and Va’a Pake Awiwi, which means “Fast Chinese Boat”). The club also owns a number of OC2s and OC1s.
