Dragon Boat League (Summer)


What is it?

The Rideau Canoe Club Boat League is an opportunity to gain valuable racing experience in the Ottawa region. Every Sunday we will have a series of races where boats will race against each other. During the evening we will change the racing groups giving boats a chance to race with different people. Space in the league is limited so sign up soon!

What do you get?

  • Chance to meet new people and have fun 
  • Great workout 
  • 10 evenings with minimum 2 races each evening
  • Great technique pointers from top level coaches

When is it?

The league takes place on Sundays from 4:30pm - 6:00pm

The first 30 minutes are focused on warm-ups and technique on the water. We will do a minimum of 2 races each session. The 2017 season will run a total of 10 weeks. The first date will be July 9th, 2017 and the last date will be September 10th, 2017. We are looking forward to a great summer full of dragon boat.

How much does it cost?

The cost to join the league is $106.20 + HST[13%] (total = $120). Each week when people arrive we will put together teams for those in attendance. If you are joining the league with friends you can stay in the same boat as your friends for all the races. We make our best efforts to ensure that all teams are close to the same speed. Remember this is about having fun and improving.
