With the dragon boating season about to begin, the Prevailing Wins Dragon Boat Society is inviting people in the Comox Valley to try this popular water sport.
Dragon boating has origins from China, dating back more than 2,000 years. It has become a mass participation paddling sport, with an ancient past and a bright future.
Dragon boating is a team sport, very social, and fun. It may be enjoyed by participants of all ages, genders and abilities.
The Prevailing Wins adult team comprises men and women who are dedicated to healthy lifestyles, and who want a balance of recreation, fitness, competition and fun in their lives. Practices are exhilarating workouts that will challenge your physical strength and stamina to limits you may not think yourself capable of.
If you wish, practices may also lead to a variety of competitive meets, which the club attends during the course of the paddling season.
For those only interested in participating at a recreational level, practises are held most Saturday mornings in Comox. Llife-jackets and paddles are provided, as well as in-depth instructions regarding paddling techniques as well as dragon boat safety requirements.
There is also a youth team for 14- to 18-year-olds, for fun, fitness and recreation. If interested in a more intense workout, which will lead to competitive meets, that is also available. 0000
The Dragon Riders is a mixed team of energetic young people who successfully compete in many events, often placing in the top ranks against adult teams.
