The Welland Dragon Boat Festival is South Coast‘s premiere water sports event. Dragon Boats are large flat water racing canoes constructed of solid teak and weighing 1500 lbs. Corporate and community teams made up of 20 paddlers, one drummer and a steers-person race in friendly competition.
Dragon Boating is user friendly and practically anyone, young or old, at any fitness level can quickly adapt to and develop a passion for this sport. Personal satisfaction, team development and friendship are just a few of the key words attributed to this sport by some of its participants. It caters to those who are competitive by nature as well as those who crave outdoor summer activity on our community waterfront parks.
