LANE COVE RIVER KAYAKERS
Lane Cove River Kayakers is a racing and fitness paddling club based at Rotary Athletics Field, Lane Cove North, Sydney. We meet every Wednesday evening throughout the year setting out from 6.25pm for a 12km, 9km or 6km time trial on tranquil Lane Cove River.
We have a strong membership base (over 150) with a broad range of ages and a reputation of being a relaxed and friendly club. While competitive on the water we are at all times very supportive of one another.
LCRK has established itself as one of the most active marathon paddling clubs in NSW with high levels of participation in events such as the:
- Hawkesbury Canoe Classic. LCRK fielded a strong team of 60+ paddlers in 50+ boats for the 40th anniversary of the Hawkesbury Classic on the 29-30 October 2016. Read ALL about LCRK's 2016 HCC here
