  • Womerah - the fastest womens singles paddler - average of best 15 12km time trials (minimum 15)
  • Paddlers Paddler - A member widely considered to have shown remarkable participation, dedication, achievement and support in LCRK activities, embodying the club spirit.
  • Squaddie of the Year - a regular squad attendee, enthusiastic and a desire to push their comfort zone, encouraging/supportive of others, receptive to feedback from coach/others, and ideally a level of paddling improvement.
  • The Blue Moon trophy is presented to an LCRK member who has been inspired to follow their own paddling goals and dreams. Contenders will be those who set their own goal/paddling dream – and plan for, train for, and execute it. This might be as ‘simple’ as a newer paddler working hard to paddle their first HCC, someone fulfilling a dream to paddle in the Worlds, someone successfully transitioning to a new paddling genre. Blue Moon is planned to be first awarded in December 2023.
