THE GREATER JACKSONVILLE 6 MILE PADDLE FUN RACE

Hi All,

Sorry to announce that Saturday's July 13th Meetup will not be behind Billy's Beach House.  The team will be participating in the Greater Jacksonville 6 Mile Paddle Fun Race on the St Johns.  The Fire Dragons along with SUP Paddlers, Canoers and Kayakers will be launching from the JU Negaard Rowing Center and finishing at the St John's Marina by the Friendship Fountain. 

We would love to have you out on the boat with us for this event, but for safety reasons this paddle will be for those who have already been out on the boat with us a couple of times.. 

If you have not been out with us on the boat or seen us in action and would like to see what Dragon Boating is all about this would be a perfect time to come on out and watch the Dragons from the St Johns Marina!!  There will be activities scheduled throughout the day along with complimentary Boat Rides on the St Johns provided by the Freedom Boat Club and you will also get a chance to meet the Fire Dragons and get to know the team and also get whatever questions you may have answered!!

    SORRY ALL but due to the weather and safety reasons, the organizers for this Saturday's 6 Mile Paddle has decided to postpone the event. They have not given a date but will keep everyone updated once we hear anything!

    A 6 mile paddle is not an issue for us. We use long distance paddling as part of our conditioning regimen. This will be fun for us since we are not competing but just paddling along with the kayak, canoe, SUP and other paddle board competitors, cheering them on from the water. One huge request: Chantal, stay away!!!

    So far in 2013, we have raced in Tavares, Tampa and Montgomery (AL) winning 2 golds, a silver and a bronze medal and reached the Premier Level each festival. Still have JAX, St. Pete, Orlando and Tampa to go. Want to help us bring home gold? Join us!
