Newcastle Outrigger

The Newcastle Outrigger Canoe Club (NOCC) caters for all people who are interested in the sport of outrigger canoeing.  It doesn’t matter if you are an elite paddler, a total novice or want a unique team building or corporate event experience – we can cater for you.  There have been outrigger paddlers in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie for many years, and in July 2009 a core group of enthusiastic paddlers decided to form Newcastle Outrigger Canoe Club.  We compete in regattas throughout NSW and at times further afield. We also have community involvement in fundraising activities, come and try days and WEA Training courses.
