Are you interested in paddling in a group of 20, getting fit, having fun, and raising PMI TORONTO spirit? To kick-off PMI TORONTO’s third dragon boat season, we are inviting members to paddle with team Project Dragon in 2017 and participate in the annual Toronto International Dragon Boat Race Festival on June 17 and 18.

Launched in 2015 as part of PMI TORONTO’s 40th Anniversary celebrations, the dragon boat team has been influential in raising PMI TORONTO’s profile and uniting members. Have a look at the 2016 team video and photos.

We are forming a team of 20 athletic men and women (minimum 10 women) of all experience levels, and one loud drummer. You must be available for four training sessions at Sunnyside Paddling Club and the two-day race festival at Marylin Bell Park (dates and times below). The fee to participate is $75.00 + HST.
