For teams wanting additional practice opportunities, outside of the sessions provided on Thursday, May 30th and Friday, May 31st, we offer you.... THE BABY DRAGON!


  • "Baby Dragon" = 8 person dragon boat that is housed at Canal Dock all year. It is 1/2 the size of the dragon boats that will be raced at the regatta. However, form and technique for the paddlers is exactly the same!
  • More than 8 paddlers are allowed to attend. We can do laps and trade off at the dock. However, a minimum of 4 paddlers are requiredin order to move our baby dragon to the water.

  • Sessions are available Monday-Friday, 5:15pm - 6:15pm. Our staff is willing to work with a later time if requested; however, the session must end prior to sunset.

  • Each session will include 1hr of skill work provided by an experienced coach - race starts, power pushes, rhythm etc. Knowledge is power! Paddlers will leave more confident in their abilities, and hopefully, teams will become more unified through their paddles.

  • All necessary equipment will be provided by Canal Dock. Paddlers are welcome to bring their own Coast Guard approved PFD (life vest) if preferred.

  • Cost is $250 per practice session.


Our Baby Dragon is available for rent May-September. If you have a group interested, let us know! It is a fun, unique, and challenging activity for family and friends (9yo+) to come together as one to propel the dragon through the water. Contact for more information.
