The Dragons are returning for the 3rd annual Constance Bay Dragon Boat Festival. Come out for a day at the beach and experience the fun of recreational Dragon Boat Racing. The Festival is presented by the Ottawa River Canoe Club in partnership with the CBBCA.
Each team consists of 1 Steersperson, provided by the ORCC, 20 paddlers, and 1 drummer. During this just for fun event each of our teams will receive a training session, participate in 2 qualifying heats, with the fastest teams competing in the A, B, and C finals to win our Women’s Cup, Community Cup, and Overall championship.
You can expect even more of the best features of our 2016 event; the children’s race tent – so the kid’s have a safe place during your races, paddle zone, a beer tent with a view of all the activities, and of course a day at the beach.
You can register your team of 21 or register individually. Practice runs start at 10:00am and the event closes at 6:00pm. Races begin at 12:45.
Team Registration: $300 ( team registration is now sold out )
Your team can get a jump on practising by booking a special pre-Festival training session. In July teams can book a Dragon Practice session at the Ottawa River Canoe Club for half the usual rate; just $50. Email LA at the club for additional information.
