Paddlers perform on False Creek

Dragon Boating

Three Fraser Valley Dragon Boat Club teams tested their mettle at the Rio Tinto Alcan Dragonboat Festival, held last weekend on False Creek in Vancouver.

There were more than 180 local and international teams competing, making it the largest festival on the west coast.

The Mavericks mixed team finished 50th overall in the recreational C division.

The Pirates finished 43rd overall in the recreational B division.

The Crusaders fought their way up to 32nd overall, starting the semi-finals in the competitive division. A rough time in the semis saw them finish up in the recreational A division.

Next up for the FVDBC teams is the Harrison Dragonfest Regatta at Harrison beach, with more than 65 teams expected to compete. This is a free event with the pubic invited to support local teams in their quest for excellence.
