I like the friendships that are built. The kindness of others more experienced and the acceptance of everyone. And as an result, you work harder than you ever had and feel better about yourself.


The first time I was seated in a Dragonboat I felt like it was a living being, it had a pulse, a heartbeat. Over the years dragonboating has improved my fitness and taken me around the world racing. All across Canada, China, Malaysia, Italy & Hungary. It has also introduced me to many new friends both here and abroad.

Joining the Quinte Paddling Club and learning to paddle in an OC6 was a fantastic opportunity! It was incredibly fun, a great workout and I've met wonderful people!

Love the excitement of dragon boating with a fabulous coach who makes it fun, a workout and a learning experience! Plus the added pleasure of being on the water!                     Fitness on the water! It doesn’t get any better!

Dragon boating is an excellent group sport. It has been fun to meet new people while getting some exercise and learning a new skill.
