Now’s the time to shake off those COVID doldrums and launch (or re-launch) yourself into the wonderful world of dragon boat paddling.
Team captains at the Fairway Gorge Paddling Club are recruiting right now in preparation for our April 1 launch.
Here are just a few of the benefits:
- Paddlers of all ages and abilities can join. We’ll find the boat that’s just right for you.
- Races, festivals and events are planned for Victoria and elsewhere on Vancouver Island.
- It’s a great way to get fit, meet people, and enjoy the wonderful Gorge Waterway.
Paddling is a sport ideally suited to Victoria
Did you know that Victoria is one of the few places in Canada that you can paddle all year ’round? We may some rain during our short winters, but temperatures seldom drop below freezing and the beautiful Gorge Waterway and Victoria’s harbour system are splendid, scenic and rewarding for paddlers in all seasons.
There are plenty of teams at the Fairway Gorge Paddling Club actively recruiting new members, and we have new teams forming every year.
