The Pointe-Claire Canoe Kayak Club is proud to host the Club Outrigger Montréal/Montréal Outrigger Club (COMMOC) for the fourth annual OC Fall Classic, which will be held this Saturday, October 5, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Pointe-Claire citizens are invited to come and cheer on the participants while enjoying an exciting show from Grande-Anse Park, on the shores of Lake Saint-Louis. It is recommended to use binoculars.
