I love to do almost anything associated with paddling – canoeing, kayaking, dragon boating etc. My first experience with dragon boating was many years ago as a paddler with a team of work colleagues at the Peterborough Festival. I then had the good fortune to be asked to volunteer as the steersperson for The Dragon Flies – a team of breast cancer survivors that paddles out of Lindsay. I steered for them for 10 years and had the opportunity to travel to dragon boat festivals all over Ontario.
The last several years, I have been paddling with iB Dragon Boating, a mixed team from Lindsay. It’s a great group of people. We enjoy all the good things about dragon boating, including being out on the water, perfecting paddling technique, exercise, camaraderie and fun.
I am looking forward to helping out with coaching the Haliburton Highlands Paddlers – a group that also appreciates all those good things about dragon boating!
