If you are newly minted member or just thinking of joining - this is place to gather all information about the Balmy Beach Canoe Club. In this fast paced and exciting sport of flat water Canoe and Kayak Sprint Racing, athletes use specially designed and highly developed racing shells and paddles in events over distances of 200, 500 and 1000 metres.  There are singles, doubles and fours in both canoe and kayak and the most exciting racing craft, the 15 person war canoe!  This truly Canadian sport has origins in our earliest history.  As an organized sport it has existed for more than 100 years.  It has been an official Olympic event since 1936.  Today more than 50 countries compete at the international level.  Beach has a rich tradition of successful competition and over the years, several members of Canada's Olympic Canoeing Team originally came from Balmy Beach.
