Join our Club

Find your inner dragon - getting out on the water in a dragon boat is a fun fitness option for anyone. By participating in weekly practices you will learn synchronicity, focus, breathing, stroke rate, and commitment. It might feel like hard work, but then there's a pause to appreciate the calm of the evening water and the nature that surrounds us. And in the end it's more than that, because when you learn to come together and work as one, you build a bond with everyone in the club.
