Va’a Team France is a competitive and social Va’a team in Singapore & We regularly train outside Sentosa.

Based at Sentosa on Siloso Beach on the southwest
side of Sentosa, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better
location to enjoy your morning awakenings and spend your weekends.

The French Touch

Not only you’ll have the opportunity to meet new people from different backgrounds, you’ll also enjoy some of our french « apéros ». We won’t let you end your Sunday without a piece of « pâté », a tasty cheese or a glass of pastis!

You will fast adopt this little french exotic accent that everyone is legendary looking for, right ?

To not miss an opportunity to talk about training, races and bootcamp, we organize monthly dinners & drinks at our various sponsors such as Napoleon, and many other events throughout the year.

Our practice schedule

We train several times per week and cater to each type of paddler. We have sessions every Saturday morning from 8am to 10am & Sunday afternoon from 3:45 pm to about 6:00 pm. We also have early morning sessions during the week every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. We start at 6:00 am and usually finish around 7:45 to be on time and ready for our working day.

We paddle around the island in front of Sentosa, but also organise “expeditions” to the East Coast and for instance raffles lighthouse!

We participate in the monthly Pastis races, that offer our newer paddlers an opportunity to gain race experience and have regular social events at one of our sponsor bars.

Last but not least, our team competes in different outrigger canoe races throughout the year both in Singapore and abroad, such as the Hong Kong Around the Island Race and the Sydney Harbour Challenge.  For more information about the upcoming sportive and social events, have a look at our Calendar.
