On 22nd of June, the Dutch Dragons will finally compete again in the Stanley International Dragon Boat Championships 2023! This a great opportunity to show your strength and rowing skills when competing against other national and international dragon boat racing teams in Hong Kong. The race course is 'just' over 270 meters long.

During the wait between the races, paddlers can stay at a marquee on the beach.

However, in order to make sure that the our Dutch Dragons make it to the finish, do not stop or make any off-strokes, they will need to do quite some training upfront. There will be a total of 12 training sessions, potentially extended by some warm-up racing sessions, and they will all take place on Saturdays in Stanley.

If YOU would like to join the Dutch Dragons boat as a paddler, please register your name NOW through the below registration link. We will race with 18 people in a boat plus a drummer. If more than 18 people will register, then we will consider having a second boat. Please also note that boats will be mixed and need to have at least 8 ladies on board.

As one can imagine, it is important that you COMMIT to those total of 12 training sessions as much as possible as your teammates simply depend on YOU. For that reason, please try to be present at least during 9 out of the 12 training sessions at a minimum.

The proposed training dates are now as follows: 25th of March, 1st of April, 8th of April, 15th of April, 22nd of April, 29th of April, 6th of May, 13th of May, 20th of May, 27th of May, 10th of June, 17th of June. The 3rd of June is potentially a racing warm-up session.

We aim for a training session to start at 17:15 pm till 18:15 pm. Thereafter people can change cloths and join teammates for some drinks / snacks or just a healthy salad afterwards.

In case you have any particular questions about the above event, please do reach out to Monique de Raaij on 5791 7772. For signing up of a membership, please go to: https://www.nvhongkong.com/sign-up
