What we’re about

Powered by Malia Paddling and Racing Club, the Burlington Dragon Boat and OC Meetup offers free events to help active people of all ages discover the joy of paddling.

Our signature events are summer Try-It sessions to introduce the fundamentals of dragon boat racing. Like it? Come back and try it again. Love it? Join the club and race with us regularly! (The club also runs a casual Saturday morning paddle.)

During the winter, we offer in-person, online, and hybrid group workouts -- a sample of the club's training program. When travel restrictions allow, we make at least one winter day trip to the paddle tank in Montreal.

Besides dragon boat-focused activities, we also host occasional casual bring-your-own-boat excursions for outrigger canoe and kayak paddlers, and off-water outdoor activities such as hikes, bikes, and snowshoes.

Dragon boating is a great choice if you
- love the water, or
- are looking for a team sport that truly emphasizes working together, or
- want a full-body workout, or
- like to perfect a craft, or
- have a wee bit of a competitive streak!
