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 world’s best dragon boat crews are coming, including teams from Canada, the US, Australia, China, Jamaica and the Philippines.

  • Kurfpfalz Dragons (Team Baden Wurttemberg), Germany. Premier Open, Premier Mixed
  • Elb Meadow Masters, Germany. Senior Mixed

  • Shtoorm, Russia. Premier Open, Premier Mixed
  • Ukranian Dragon Boat Federation, Ukraine. Senior Mixed
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 athlete’s 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.

    Dear friends of the Dragon Boat Community of Europe, to be a “community” means to be a team, to be friends, to know each other and to support each other. In my visit in Armenia I met people that love our sport, that want to grow, that want to develop also the social part with a specific adaptive dragon boat project. Last week end some Armenian Athlets were in Spain and next Monday ArmDBF will enter the EDBF EC 2018 in Brandenburg. Happy birthday to the President of the Armenian Dragon Boat Federation, Makar Sargsyan, today 32 year old and my best wishes to continue in his commitment for our sport. #newgenerations Claudio Schermi EDBF President

    Berlino - meeting with the Organizing Committee of the next European Nations Championships in Brandenburg from 23 to 26th August. With me Slawek Borucki, in his key role within our sport. He is responsible for registration, race program and EDBF web site. Ute Becker and Gitta Weber are doing a great job and all details and criticism are under control. A lot of provisional Entries and other are expected very soon. Looking forward to see in Brandenburg all the top Paddlers of the dragon boat community of Europe. Following the request received we will reconsider the possibility to add the class open in Senior C standard boat. Claudio Schermi EDBF President
