Germanys Kurpfalz Dragons and Schwerin Uhus, reminded the North American clubs that Germanys experienced dragon boat scene has long been producing top paddlers. In addition to Kurpfalzs gold in the Premier open 500m and bronze in the PM 2000m, the club came in third in the Premier Open 200m and Premier Mixed 500m. Schwerin cashed in on the depth of experience in the club with four medals: second place in the 200m Grand Dragon Mixed, also second in both the 200m and 500m Grand Dragons Open, and third in the Senior Womens 500m classes.

    European Dragon Boat Federation shared Kayak Sans Frontières's event.
    After three already successful international festivals Club Nautique de M'Bao in Senegal and Kayak Sans Frontières, France are once again collaborating on M'Bao 2018! The festival which is held in the seaside town of M'Bao, Senegal (Africa) uses the sport of dragon boating to unite the European and African cultures. The festival focuses on the importance of cultural enrichment and the environment; getting across the message that we must all respect and nurture our environment as it is a valuable resource. More information can be found here: https://drive.google.com/open… If you are up for a bit of cultural change and would like to do your bit for the environment then I cannot recommend this trip more.
