Century Dragons

What We Do: We paddle Monday and Wednesdays for an hour and a half at False Creek.

Century Dragons are a senior women’s dragon boat team of 22 paddlers. We spend 1-1/2 hours two times a week on the water at False Creek from March to mid-October.

 In 2023 we raced in four regattas and collected three medals. We are on track to race 4 or 5 regattas next year.

We started the team in 2016 and our membership keeps growing. As a team, we organize fundraising events (watch for our bake sales) to pay for race entry fees. We have applied for a grant for seniors who strive to keep fit as well as we are concerned about our carbon footprint (carpool or skytrain).

Life as a dragon boat paddler takes time, dedication, energy, strength, endurance, skill, and stamina. During off season, we do dry land training. Our goal is to stay fit and healthy.

Important to Know: We encourage new members. We offer two free paddles on the water for people to try it out before committing to the team.
