Visiting & NEW Paddlers 


Bondi OCC welcomes new paddlers of all ages and experience levels to join our club. We run a mix of new paddler sessions and advanced programs throughout the week from Woollahra Sailing Club at Rose Bay. 


If you are new to the sport please contact our novice co-ordinator. 


For juniors 18 and under please contact our juniors coach.

We will teach you in-depth training on the paddle stroke, the roles of each paddler in the canoe, the components of the canoe and safety protocols. Learn about the culture of the canoe and what makes it such an exciting sport that brings people together.


For your safety, paddlers should be comfortable in the water and have basic swimming skills.
