Over a hundred teams have registered to compete in the upcoming IDBF Club Crew World Championships, taking place in Toronto from August 10-13.

More than 2,000 athletes are confirmed for the championship races. Together with community, diversity and breast cancer survivor races, the numbers of athletes and supporters will exceed 3,000. Many of the worlds best dragon boat crews are coming, including teams from Canada, the US, Australia, China, Jamaica and the Philippines.

A number of other teams, including Czech, Italian and Russian crews, submitted provisional entries for the Championships but recently pulled out due to the challenges of raising funds to travel abroad with large crews.

"We are very pleased overall with the strong response we have had from the international dragon boat community," said Organizing Committee Chair Sharifa Khan. "These numbers put us in a great position to build on the success of past IDBF Championships in places like Berlin and Cape Town. We are now working very hard with our partners, sponsors and volunteers to ensure that Toronto puts on the best ever Club Crew World Championships."

The Championships will be held at the new Western Beaches Watercourse in Toronto. On-site facilities will include an athletes village, a variety of food vendors and a beer tent, as well as art exhibits, information booths for local tourism, an official CCWC merchandise booth, and a marketplace featuring products for sale from various sponsors and suppliers (including watersport gear vendors).

The final event schedule and crew list are now available at the CCWC site: www.2006ccwc.com.

    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.
