Dragonboat Paddle

Are you ready? Attention! Go!! Lets use all the skills we learnt at the regatta and use them in our training session!

Details are as follows:

Meeting at Surfdock, Grand Canal Dock at 10.45am (slightly later than previously, hoping to get onto the water by 11.00)
Buoyancy aids and paddles are provided but please dress appropriately for water and weather (plenty of layers to protect against the cold, hats and gloves are always handy to have. Jeans are not appropriate and will not keep you warm so go for training/tracksuit bottoms instead. Waterproof is ideal.)
We should be off the water and have the boats loaded by 12pm.

As per usual, everyone will be asked to donate 5euro to the Plurabelle Paddlers for the use of their equipment.

Unfortunately we don't have restroom facilities but there is a safe lock up to leave belongings.

After the water session, we will go for coffee & something to eat. It's a nice way for newbies to get to know the team and what we're all about.

**For our regular paddlers, please be aware that it is your responsibility to register with the IDBA to ensure you are covered by insurance. A copy of the registration form can be found in the 'File' section on our meetup page, or you can email us at [masked] and we can send on a copy to you if necessary.**

See you Saturday!

    Well done today everyone! The wind and rain really were not in our favour but the effort from the crew ment we made the most out of the session! Pats on the back all round.

    Guys, if we don't get a few more RSVPs for training I'm going to have to cancel! From experience we usually get a few no shows and there are no extra paddlers we can recruit on the day, so 9 simply will not be enough to load the boats. Please keep an eye on meetup tomorrow just in case!! Very sorry!
