Welcome to Karapiro Kayak Racing Club

The club promotes the sport of kayak racing and encourages kayakers of all abilities to participate in and enjoy this great sport.

The club is located on the Mighty River Domain, right next door to the Rowing New Zealand and Canoe Racing NZ High Performance Bases - how inspiring!

Based on the waterfront with easy launching, we have full use of the launching pontoons.


Club membership is great value, and gives you access to a coaching programme and full fleet of single and double racing kayaks. We also have smaller training boats suitable for younger members (9 to 12 years).

There is much more to your membership than simply coaching. Join in the club champs, meet other paddlers, team up for multisport events, and enjoy paddling with a bunch of friendly and enthusiastic people.
