Drag Queens and guests, we also need to confirm numbers by 4th June, to make sure there’s enough food and drinks for everyone. Check out this Facebook invite to sign up.

Regular and Race Training

Tuesday 6.30 am

Thursday 6.30 am

No training this weekend!!! 

Please take note that Tuesday and Thursday morning paddle are additional sessions and not to replace the weekend regular training. 



For those non-subscription members, Saturday training is S$15. But if you are going only for the land training, it’s S$5. 

Tuesday morning is covered for subscription members, and $5 for non-subscriptions. For Thursday morning, everyone has to pay $5 to cover the coaching cost.

Training Etiquette:

Please be on time for training. We need this time before paddling to ensure that the boats are ready, everyone has the right equipment, and that we have done a warm-up before getting on the boat. Please don’t leave it to your teammates to get everything ready for you. We also need this time to organise the line-up properly.

– If you are going to be late, please text Aoife at 8573 3285 before the meeting time.

– If you show up or text us too late and we do not have room on the kitted boat(s), you will not be able to train that day.

Boat(s) will launch at 3.30pm (Saturday), 9.30am (Sunday) and 7am(Tuesday & Thursday) SHARP!!! 


Please bring only what you need to training and try to avoid bringing large bags. Especially on Saturdays, as the bag cage gets very full and we want to make sure that everyone’s bag can be safely locked away.

Water/Water Bottle:

Please bring your water bottles to training to help reduce plastic waste and save our planet! If you don’t have your water bottles yet, please take 2-3 bottles of water from the cage. We will not take the boxes of water in the boat anymore.

 Do you have what it takes to survive the  
Bootcamp of DOOM?! Find us at The Promontory @ Marina Bay (under the giant fans – message Jess Golding on Facebook for directions)7:30pm til 8:30pm, every Tuesday.
How much? $5 for PAYG members, and free for subscription members! What to bring? water, towel and a shitload of enthusiasm!

It’s quizzing time!
