Dragon Boat / Rowing

Posted on by in Sports and Programs, Summer

Dragon Boat is a great way to paddle the Red River in summer. A dragon boat
team consists of 10 paddlers for the mini dragon boat and 20 paddlers for the
full boat. In addition to the Paddlers each boat requires a Cox to steer and a
drummer who sets the pace. Paddlers provide the power to move the boat.
Timing of paddling is more important than strength of the individual paddlers
making it a great team Sport. This program offers once/week training in
summer and depending on participants, the team can compete in the various
Dragon Boat Festivals that are held in Winnipeg. Practices are held at the
Manitoba Canoe Kayak Association facility located at 80 Churchill Drive, in
