Dragon Boat & Outrigger Canoeing

Dragon Boat
OC6 Outrigger Canoe

Dragon boat racing is a traditional Chinese paddled watercraft activity and been around for over 2000 years. A standard dragon boat consists of 20 paddlers, plus a helm and drummer.

The Hurricanes compete in a variety of races; sprints and longer distances. Sprints are usually 200m or 500m. The longer distances vary, depending on the event.


Outrigger canoes (also known as Va’a canoes) have been around for more than 4000 years, originating from the islands of Southeast Asia.

Initially used for trade and transportation, outrigging has evolved into a popular sport in Tahiti and Hawaii, and gaining momentum in the UK and around the world.
