The United Kingdom's Outrigger Club based in Central London


OCUK's Committee

The OCUK committee meets once a month. Committee roles come up for re-election annually, giving all members the opportunity to participate in the running of the club. We find this systems works well, giving the club a fresh edge at the start of each year and improving relationships within the club.

Brian Denholm, Chairman

Brian Denholm aka "Stormboy" started paddling in 1999 for Texaco Dragonboat club which later became the Thames DBC. He participated in many UK and a few world events, but due to his lanky stature decided that a switch to outrigging was in order. Unfortunately Thames DBC weren't in a position to fund the purchase of an OC6. So, with a few other paddlers, he chipped in to buy two OC6's from New Zealand. When the new toys arrived, started paddling OC6 as well as Dragonboat. This became a bit much so dropped the regular Dragonboating in 2003 and has been paddling Outrigger's since. Helped found OCUK in 2002 and had many an overseas paddling trip to compete in various events around the world.
