Get to Know Us!
We are chinatown's showboat!
We are one of Ottawa's most spirited and community minded dragon boat teams. Our core aims are having fun, developing our paddling skills, and supporting our community through fundraising and involvement.
The team practices at the Rideau Canoe Club on Tuesday evenings at 7pm throughout the summer. Each year, we bring considerable spirit and noise to the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival. We don costumes, decorate our tent, and lose our voices after a day of cheering! Sometimes, we get recognized for it!
Paddling skills run the full spectrum from experienced paddlers with competitive teams to individuals with little or no experience. All are welcome!
Our weekly practices prepare the team to compete in 3 local festivals during the summer, wrapping up in early September.
We are very committed to fundraising, and there are moderate fundraising expectations.
