In 1999 a club originated on Narrabeen Lake with 5 members and a borrowed outrigger canoe. It was founded on the enthusiasm, passion and love of the sport. 

As one of the original 3 clubs in New South Wales for outrigging, our knowledge has been gained through dedication to excellence over many years. One of the highlights in the beginning was gaining access to the ocean which required navigating through the nortorious North Narrabeen surf break; this provided weekly excitement. 

Current training locations are now throughout the Northern Beaches, Manly, Middle Harbour, Narrabeen, Pittwater. The club has worked to be a force to be reckoned with in New South Wales, breaking the Queensland domination of the sport.  

The club now has members travelling from far and wide in metroplitan Sydney to train, benefit from the variety of conditions and to be a part of the strongest competitive club in Australia.
