A multi-disciplinary Vancouver-based paddling club on Granville Island

Introduction to Dragon Boat

Introduction to Dragon Boat sessions are not being offered in August 2022.

The False Creek Racing Canoe Club offers Introduction to Dragon Boat sessions to school, corporate and community groups.  These sessions run for approximately 2 hours and provide the opportunity to experience the thrill of dragon boating with a team in a supervised and safe environment.  The dragon boat experience is often a great way to develop and support team work.  Participants will be provided with PFDs and paddles.  There will be access to a steersperson and coach who will review basic safety and paddling skills.

Dragon boats hold 20 paddlers, 1 steersperson and a drummer/coach.  The session usually consists of preparation time on land followed by paddling on the water.  Groups with more than one boat have the opportunity to end the session with several races.
