The 2016 Canadian Cancer Society September Dragon Boat Challenge will take place September 9th & 10th, 2016 at the Manitoba Canoe and Kayak Centre in Winnipeg.
The September Challenge is a unique event that is a favourite amongst paddlers from the most novice to the expert! It not only features smaller 10 paddler dragon boats, but also incorporates a “U-turn” midway through the course. With just 10 paddlers and a drummer needed, it’s a race that allows families, friends and co-workers to get together for some fun and to raise funds for the cancer fight!
Teams can register a maximum of 15 members (10 paddlers, a drummer, a steerer and 3 spares). In order to participate in practices and races, each boat must have a minimum of 8 paddlers and a drummer (steerers provided if needed).
Racing starts at 6:00 PM on the Friday, and starts again at 9:00 AM on the Saturday, finishing at 6:00 PM.
Early Dragon registration for a team is $350 prior to Aug.1st, 2016.
