WOMEN ON THE WATER!
Intro to Dragon Boat Paddling
Dragon boating is one of the fastest growing sports in the world! Soaring down a race course in a long, narrow canoe-like boat, 20 paddlers moving in synchronicity toward that finish line, is a feeling like nothing else! Here’s an opportunity to enjoy learning this sport, meet new people, and spend time on our beautiful White Bear Lake!
Try it out! You will have four, weekly training sessions (1 ½ hour each time) and then participate as a team in the St. Paul Dragon Festival at Lake Phalen. Paddles, boat and life jackets provided (though if you have your own life jacket, feel free to bring it). The fee covers training, coaching, equipment and race entry fees.
