*** Try-It-Tuesday (and Wednesday) Intro to Racing Event ***
Tue + Wed, Aug 1+2, 5:30-7:15pm.
Join us for a free 2-night series to jumpstart your dragon boat racing journey!
- On Tuesday we’ll teach you the basics of the stroke and of paddling together.
- On Wednesday you’ll sit in on a practice with the racing team.
From there, you can join our M/W practices on gorgeous Lake Champlain and go get your first taste of racing at the amazing Quebec Cup in Montreal September 16-17, alongside teams of all skill levels – including some of the best in the world!
RSVPs are required: http://www.maliaracing.com/signup-to-paddle/
Note: We require proof of a Covid-19 booster/shot given after Sept 2, 2022.
The focus for this track is competition – each session focuses on technique plus different racing elements and strategy. Opportunity to also practice on Saturday mornings (see below) if there are open seats.
Races: Lachine Knockout (6/10/23 Montreal), Montreal Challenge (7/1-7/2/2023 Montreal), Quebec Cup (9/16-9/17/2023 Montreal).
Saturdays at 10am. Focus for these sessions is learning dragon boat technique, getting a workout, and enjoying the lake. Paddlers in these sessions will be a mix of newbies and former team members who are unable to commit to twice-weekly training or racing this season.
