Description

Have you ever wondered what it's like to paddle in a dragon boat?

Do you thrive on the thrill of competition, and the fun of teamwork?

Are you ready to try something new this year to see what your mind and body can achieve?

If your answer is YES, now is your chance to do so!

Typhoon Dragon Boat Club is bringing back our Spring Open Day on Saturday March 24th 2018. It will be a great opportunity for you to try out dragon boating, learn basic dragon boating techniques, meet a bunch of new friends, and experience a new method of cardio, core strength and upper body strength workout (It has been reported that a regular dragon boating training session can burn up to 1000 calories).

And guess what? It is TOTALLY FREE! We are a bunch of dragon boat enthusiasts, eager to promote the sport and raise more awareness within community. We are not after profit. Therefore seats on boat are limited, and based on previous experience, they will be filled very quickly. If you are interested, secure your place TODAY!

As soon as we receive your booking, one of our committee members will get in touch with you and help you complete paddler registration form.




What to expect on the Open Day:

- Introductions - learn the basics of the sport
- Get kitted up (dragon boat, paddles and buoyancy aids provided)
- Safety briefing
- A full Dragon Boat experience on the water - a fun session with technique drills and some opportunities to race
- Q/A from our panel of experts

All necessary equipment will be provided by us. There are changing rooms and hot shower facilities on site. You only need to bring change of clothes and an open mind. Wear warm and comfortable sportswear which you don’t mind getting wet - preferably waterproof or quick-drying though this is not essential.

Whether you're a beginner or expert, come check us out and get a taste of the Typhoon experience. Do not worry if you cannot swim. We'll provide you with a buoyancy aid. Our experienced coaches/paddlers will be there to guide you throughout the day so you will always be in safe hands.

Prolong Your Experience with Membership

We hope the Open Day is just the start of your exciting Dragon Boating journey. Feel free to talk to any of club members about joining the club. As new joiner, you are entitled to 2 further free training sessions before committing to membership. We train 3 times a week on water during summer (March to October). Every year we compete in BDA (British Dragon Boat Association) National League races, various domestic and international dragon boat racing events.

Notes:

As dragon boaters, rain does not bother us. However if wind speeds are higher than 20mph on the day, there is a risk that LRC will close its water for safety reasons, and there is nothing much we could do about it. In that case, the event will be postponed to Saturday 31st March. We will keep a very close eye on the weather forecast, and keep you updated close to the date.
