ORCC Dragon Boat Teams
Dunrobin Dames and Dukes 'n Dames

In 2001, ORCC was among one of the first clubs to feature a women's only team which evolved from a group of novice paddlers to contenders for the gold medal at the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival. The teams competitive spirit, hard work ethic, and sense of humour has made the Dunrobin Dames a real force to contend with at local festivals.

Dunrobin Dukes 'n Dames Dragon Boat Team
Mixed dragonboat practices are a blend of team focus and a lot of fun on the water. ORCC's 2014 mixed team had great results at Ottawa and Carleton Place. They topped the season off with gold in the Kingston B final! We are looking forward to continuing to build on our mixed dragon boat experience and compete in 2015!

The 2015 calendar includes the Lachine Knockout and the Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival in June, as well as The Fall 400 in Carleton Place and the Kingston Dragon Boat Festival in September. We are hoping to you will join our Dames or mixed team this summer on the water!
