Press! Sit Up! Push!

Press! Sit up! Push! The commands you won’t forget after our first official race this year.

Let’s do it again on the coming races! 

Captain’s Message

Well done to everyone who participated on SAVA Sprints last weekend! We all paddled hard and supported each other in every way we can.

It has only been 7 weeks since we had the new coach and we have already seen the big improvement on each of us and the team. Let’s keep on working hard and break all the limits. Being the best is a never ending process, we may have to take it one step at a time but we WILL NEVER GIVE UP! ONE TEAM, ONE GOAL!

WE HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE ONE OF THE BEST. Let’s continue with our commitment to the team and to ourselves, aim for progress ON and OFF the boat. Every effort we put in as a team and individually will take us to where we want to be.

Paddles Up! Kick Arse! Go GAELICS!

Regular and Race Training


Wednesday 6.30 am

Saturday 2.45 pm

Sunday 9.30 am 


A reminder to everyone:

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. 

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), 10am (Sunday) and 7am(Wednesday) 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.


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

Saturday Land Trainingand Sunday Run


We are back! Come on down this Saturday for a session with coach. Be at the cage before 2pm (Aoife is checking the attendance)! Don’t be late! For Sunday, join Coach Waihong for a run right after the Sunday Race Training.
