Lantau Boat Club Paddling Section

LBC - ATIR 2015

Lantau Boat Club Paddling Section was formed in March 2005 and has about 60 members, mostly residents of Discovery Bay.

We have six 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”) and two are “Unlimited” canoes. The club also owns a number of OC2s and OC1s.

Whilst outrigging is our main sport, we also race in the Dragon Boat events. More information can be found below.
