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 for a 6.25pm start, 12km, 9km or 6km time trial on tranquil Lane Cove River.

Lane Cove River Kayakers are well on track to building a strong team (40+ boats) to take on the 2016 Hawkesbury Canoe Classic
With a long history supporting the event and with LCRK holding a good number of the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic race records, we are very keen to put in a strong performance this year in the 40th anniversary of the event. If you are contemplating taking on the event, then think about joining the Lane Cove River Kayakers team.
