Picture a warm, sunny day on Brighton Bay…music is playing, you can smell hamburgers on the barbecue and yummy French fries in the fryer. People are cheering and laughing. Bright green life jackets and crazy costumes dot the shoreline while two boats race neck and neck down the race course.

This 200m race course is the scene of the Ninth Annual Community Dragon Boat Festival on June 23! We want you to share in this fun-filled day with your team competing against other community teams. What an amazing team building opportunity!

The festival aims to introduce people to dragon boating in a fun way while raising funds for a local non-profit organization. This year’s recipient will be the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation .

Trenton Dragon Boat Festival

Thanks to everyone who registered and paddled on Saturday, July 21 in Trenton. We had a great day. The weather was warm and sunny, with a wind on the water, we paddled into the waves, needless to say it was harder, we got soaking wet but it was great fun!

There were 6 teams: Kingston Dragon Boat Club 'Here There Be Dragons'; Brighton Dragon Boat Club 'Heat Stroke'; Belleville's 'Top Gunnels'; Trenton's YMCA Sink or Swim and Trenton's YMCA 'Rift Raft'. All proceeds went to children's programs at the YMCA in Trenton. 

Kingston did well with times of 01:10.7 minutes winning their first race vs YMCA Rift Raft. Then in their second race Kingston received almost the same time of 01:10.3 minutes winning their second race vs YMCA Sink or Swim. Kingston's third race heat they received a time of 01:10.5 vs Top Gunnels. Moving on to the B finals, Kingston DBC's team Here There Be Dragons won first place in the B Division Finals.

We hope you will join us in Wellington! More paddlers are needed.

Watch for upcoming paddle events to Kingston Mills locks for a paddlers' picnic and to Huckleberry Island in the St Lawrence River for a team pot luck. Stay tuned! Paddles up!
