How to Find Us
- Email us to let us know you’re coming down. Saturday afternoons are best if its your first time.
- Tuesday mornings we meet for an hard & fast 1 hour session before work. These training sessions take place in the lead up to races and are for subs members only.
- Wednesday technique training is at Farrer Park Swimming Complex. Please use this map as a guide on how to get there.
- Thursday we meet under the trees between Marina Bay Financial Centre and Marina Bay Sands for either an intense bootcamp session or pilates (helps with our stretching and limits dragon boating-related injuries); alternate weeks, please refer to the calendar. In the event of rain, the sessions will be located under the large outdoor fans opposite Marina Bay Financial Centre. These sessions are for subs members only.
- Saturday and Sunday training is at our team storage cage opposite The Kallang Riverside Park on Stadium Road & Stadium Link. A number of other teams meet in the same area so please check you’re with the right team before getting in a boat. Ours is the first set of cages on the right as you walk into the boat yard. More details here on how to find us.

Fitness and Safety
- As dragon boating involves muscular and aerobic activity you do need to be in reasonably good health to paddle; if you’re not fit, this is a great way to get fit!
- You should be able to swim at least 50 metres (although we hope we never have to put this to the test).
- Age is no factor as long as you are reasonably fit – we’ve had paddlers from ages 16 to 60 in our boats.
- Life jackets must be worn at all times while on the water – we have team ones available, but do bring your own if you have one.
- In the very, very unlikely event of the boat capsizing, stay with the boat and your buddy and remain calm.
- You will get wet (it is a splashy sport!).
What To Bring
- Save some time on the day by printing and filling out our registration form.
- $15 per session on Saturday and Sunday which covers hire of all your equipment, qualified coaches and some refreshments. For pool training sessions on Wednesday $12 which covers for pool entry, equipment and qualified coaches.
- Most people wear shorts and a sleeveless t-shirt in the boat. Only wear stuff you’re happy to get wet. Old sandals, reef shoes or wetsuit booties are a very good idea as there are sometimes sharp rocks in and around the beach area.
- Bring an appropriate factor sun screen (even if its not sunny the sun still gets through those clouds).
- Caps and shades are advisable, but leave your Guccis at home!
- Always bring a large bottle of water.
- Try to limit the number of valuables you bring. Bags can be locked in our storage cage but at your own risk.
The Weather (we are the British team after all so we have to talk about that)
- If it rains we still paddle (you’re going to get wet anyway) so still come down.
- We will not go out though if there is lightning as it makes our Cox very nervous. (Something to do with being the highest point standing at the back of the boat!)
