Lane Cove River Kayakers is a racing and fitness paddling club based at Rotary Athletics Field, Lane Cove North, Sydney. We meet every Wednesday evening throughout the year setting out from 6.25pm for a 12km, 9km or 6km time trial on tranquil Lane Cove River.

We have a strong membership base (over 150) with a broad range of ages and a reputation of being a relaxed and friendly club. While competitive on the water we are at all times very supportive of one another.
