As the largest club in the Wellington region, we have more than one team so you can find a place to fit no matter your fitness level or age.

Our club is made up of people from all over and from all age groups, in 2016 we had 3 teams paddling Green Machine in the Open (mixed) division, Hutt Valley Heat in the Women’s division and the Silver Dragons in the Masters (40+) divisions.

VDC members also act as coaches, sweeps, or provide general support and advise for teams that are not in the club.

The Uniforms

Club Singlets

Our awesome white quick dry singlets with Black & White logo were sponsored by the gas hub in 2011, Brentwood Hotel in 2012 and Pub Charity in 2013.

Plus we’ve recently re-designed our club singlets. Don’t they look snazzy! 100% Breathable Polyester Single Jersey Knit Snag resistant fabric.

We now have a black and a white version and more than enough singlets to fit and kit out everyone.

The Equipment

Life Jackets and Paddles

We’ve also recently purchased VDC life jackets which are compulsory for all paddlers to wear.

And to complete the look, we have also recently bought new carbon fibre paddles which are lightweight and make paddling a breeze! Don’t worry we’ve still got the wooden ones for those super hard training sessions!
