Lawrie Chenoweth

October 25, 2020

Lawrie Chenoweth continues in the fine tradition of his father, Ross, founder of the Ivanhoe Northcote Canoe Club. Lawrie took to kayaking at an early age and in 1975 became Australian junior sprint champion. He has represented Australia in K1, K2 & K4 classes and competed in numerous Murray Marathons. Lawrie continues to be an active paddler.

Lawrie has served on the INCC Committee for many years, taking on numerous roles, including President. He is a tireless worker for our club and is always on hand for advice and assistance. He donates considerable time and resources to the maintenance of club boats. Lawrie also contributes to the administration of the sport at state and national levels by serving on the Paddle Victoria Board and Sprint Committee.

A great love of the sport of kayaking is evident in Lawrie’s encouragement of others, particularly the junior members who will become our future champions. He is an enthusiastic member of the coaching panel for our junior paddling program. His generous spirit and welcoming manner attracts others to INCC.
