Out on the Water with Dragon BoatsPresented by Dragon Boat Victoria (DBV)
** This event has unfortunately been cancelled **
Dragon Boat Victoria has gathered a troupe of corporate organisations and government departments to put together a Dragon Boat team of up to twenty paddlers to compete in the inaugural Melbourne Pride Cup.
Rowena Allen, the Victorian Government Commissioner for Gender and Sexuality is the patron of the event. Each Dragon Boat team will have an experienced sweep and drummer to guide the crew in a pre-event training session and in the competitions, together with two to four Australian/Victorian representative paddlers. Teams will compete in 200 and 500 metre races. The Pride Cup will be awarded to the Dragon Boat team with the best times across both distances.
