Saturday Paddling
Come join the Vikings in a Dragon boat and paddle around Grand Canal Dock. We are a competitive team who also like to go for a sociable coffee after training. We have a monthly session suitable for new paddlers no matter what experience level. We provide paddles, buoyancy aides and will give you a safety briefing before you go out on the water. Our coaches and experienced paddlers will guide you through the technique of paddling our 20 person boat. Hopefully we can give you a taste of Dragon boat racing. A €10 fee is required for anyone who is not a member of the Vikings club, this is payable on the day. This is an outdoor water sport, please wear appropriate clothes for a physical activity. Paddlers should have a basic level of fitness and be aware that they accept the risks involved in this activity.

    What we're about

    We are Dublin's only mixed Dragon Boat club. If you don't already know, dragon boats are 40ft long boats that have 20 paddlers and a helm and take part in races over short and long distances. At our training sessions in Grand Canal Dock we aim to improve our fitness and paddling technique as well as have fun and socialise with a cup of coffee afterwards. We host a Meetup once a month specifically for new paddlers, no matter what experience you have come and give it a try. If you find yourself enjoying it you'll be more than welcome to join any of our Saturday morning training sessions.
