Dragon Boat News

Congratulations to our Dragon Boat team, “Sync or Swim” for a very successful and fun season! We had a team of 20 plus women including alternates, practice every Wednesday evening for 6 weeks with the Burloak canoe Club.

Aidan Tyrell was our coach again this year and he was patient and encouraging. We had lovely weather and often had 2 blue herons flying overhead. We competed in the Mississauga Dragon Boat Regatta held in Port Credit on June 11th. On our final race we overheard someone yell out, “Go Grannies”. We laughed and I think this buoyed our spirits. We were surprised and delighted to earn a bronze medal! This was our first medal in a few years.

We are very grateful for the donations received to date for the Scholarship Fund. If you are able to donate please visit our website Donations page Here. You can choose the Dragon Boat team. Thank you to all the paddlers and see you next year!

Dragonboaters raised $2100 for the CFUW Scholarship fund. Thank you everyone for sponsoring and supporting the team!
