Fairway Gorge Race management has updated our "Dragon Boat Festival Rules & Regulations" to bring them into line with Dragon Boat Canada Rules of Racing.


Dragon boating ... it is a strenuous, repetitive, upper body exercise that increases flexibility, aerobic capacity and strength; it provides an opportunity to work with a large group at one time; it projects a visible, positive message to all people with breast cancer; it is a team sport that builds harmony and a feeling of togetherness; and it is an exhilarating experience that is aesthetically pleasing and fun to do.
