2023 Ice dragon boat FESTIVAL on OTTAWA's RIDEAU CANAL is back!

The event will be held on the weekend of Feb. 3-4, with practice on Friday and races on Saturday.  The details are published below.  To see a great video summary of the event by the organizers to see what it's all about, click HERE.  All indoor activities have moved to nearby spacious HMCS Carleton (entertainment, warming up, standings, etc).  If interested to come and have not registered yet, please register ASAP before we sell out!

We're fundraising for the Ottawa Dragon Boat Foundation.  Click HERE to donate under our team's name!  If we are a top 6 fundraising team, we will get an extra race at Friday night's "Shiver n Giver" race.
