All the Club’s Dragon Boats (5 BuKs, 1 6-16) are available to all DB Teams. Up to three DB practice timeslots per week are available to each team (or 3 slots/crew for teams with more than one crew, who register and pay as multple teams).
Dragon Boat Season
The practice season runs from January 1st through December 31st of each year. A full year of practice timeslots may be chosen; or instead, timeslots from January to the end of June, or from July through December.
Dragon Boat Teams may book one of the Club’s three Granville Island coach boats (see club policy) for use during practices and Time Trials.
Marathon Canoes and ERG Machine
Team members may use the Marathon canoes and ERG Machine stored in the boat shed next to the Community Centre (West side).
Important: prior to using the Marathon canoes, paddlers must attend an Orientation session. The Club will schedule Orientation sessions from time to time as demand dictates. Notices for regular sessions will be posted on the Club web site and outside the Club office. As well, it may be possible to arrange a special “team” Orientation session for any team which requests it.
Teams wishing to book the Marathons for a Time Trial, or the ERG machine, may do so, though the Club office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
False Creek Community Centre
DB Team Members may use the FCCC’s change rooms, lockers, showers and saunas, and get discounts on the user fees in the FCCC’s Fitness Centre
Teams can rent FCCC meeting rooms at the reduced rates, if the rental is done through the Club Office.
Please refer to the FCCC Information page for room details.
