ABOUT THE CLUB
Fort Langley Canoe Club is situated along the Fraser River in the Bedford Channel* near historic Fort Langley, British Columbia. The club was first established in 1994 and still continues to welcome hundreds of recreational paddlers and enthusiastic water sport athletes, providing opportunity for people of all ages and at every level of experience to come down to the river, breathe in the fresh air, and make paddling a healthy part of their lives.
Whatever the discipline, whether dragon boat, outrigger canoe or voyageur canoe, FLCC is currently the home club of many competitive athletes and teams, some of whom participate at regional, provincial, national and even international levels. Every year FLCC organizes and hosts several significant regattas and water sport events for the entire community, including Brigade Days and Cranberry Festival Races (both for voyageur canoes).
The haunts of BC’s once-active trading hub linger in the design and nature of the area’s museums, bustling shops and plentiful cafes. This feeling of being part of history increases as you paddle away from the dock with the sounds and lights of Fort Langley fading in the distance. The river then offers, in every direction, stunningly brilliant scenic views of mountains, undisturbed forests, amazing sky displays and regular sightings of eagles, seals and other wildlife.
*Across the channel from the club is Brae/McMillan Island, the home of the Kwantlen First Nations community, upon whose unceded territory FLCC is located.
