Victoria Lake Canoe Club is situated at Victoria Lake in Germiston.

Welcome to VLC Canoeing

Welcome to Victoria Lake Canoeing Club - Our home base is Victoria Lake Germiston where we have access to some of the cleanest recreational water in Gauteng. VLC Canoeing is one sporting section of four that constitute Victoria Lake Club. We have a access to the lake most days of the year and have a clearly marked out 3Km route around the outer edge of the lake. Apart from access to great water the canoeing section offers boathouse facilities and change rooms with warm showers to help you through winter. We welcome any new paddlers and novices and do whats possible to introduce novices into the sport.

The club allows you to try the sport out before becoming a member and even has club boats and equipment available should you want to try this magnificent sport. We welcome and if you are interested, please contact one of the committee members. (see our contacts page).

In addition to getting started, the club offers guidance and assistance to get to your first river race and eventually to Fish or Dusi if that is your aspiration. Apart from river marathons the club offers exposure to a variety of other canoeing diciplines including, falt water sprints, marathons, K4 racing etc. for young and not so young. The club has two resident coach's on offer to assist anyone starting, Richard and Colin, who are both available for a small coaching fee.
The Canoeing Section has a huge focus on development and through the VLC Water Institute provides access to canoeing to all the local schools in and around Germistion.

Chairman’s Chirp
Big kudos to our Development Coach, Richard Cele, who, together with his brother, finished an incredible 3rd overall at the 2016 Non-Stop Dusi. What an epic race and real hard-core stuff. Also worthy of mention is the credible 11th overall and 4th K1 finish by Thomas Ngidi from VLC. Tim and AlClad - thanks for making this possible.
