IDBF Club Crew World Championships Update

01 August 2006
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.

European crews participating in the 2006 CCWC are:

  • Kurfpfalz Dragons (Team Baden Wurttemberg), Germany. Premier Open, Premier Mixed
  • Elb Meadow Masters, Germany. Senior Mixed
  • Schwerin Uhu´s, Germany. Senior Open, Women, and 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 All I would like to take the opportunity of the SportAccord Convention 2018, to thank you all for the time and effort you put into submitting a new design proposal for the EDBF logo. Due to the quality of the submissions of which we received 14, it has taken the EDBF Council much longer to make a final decision. There was a number of really good ideas, but they were not always suitable for all mediums of print. From the initial 14, three were finally short listed with the preferred logo finally selected from Capture Design. The handover of ownership and intellectual property of the new EDBF Logo has been signed by the Capture Design Chairman Mr Li Dong and myself in a bi-languages version. The EDBF will release an Honor Certificate to Capture Design as the original designer/creator of the new EDBF Logo and will publish it on the EDBF web site, on the EDBF FB page and on the EDBF Instagram page. Thank you once again to all designers/creators submitting the 14 new logo proposals for the time invested into our sport. Claudio Schermi EDBF President

    World Beach Games, a new multisport events in the landscape of the sport. The World Beach Games will be held every two years following the edition being organised by ANOC in San Diego in 2019. The Sport Programme will be determined in agreement with the IOC and in principle no Olympic events will be included in future Beach Games. https://gaisf.org/gaisf-and-anoc-sign-landmark-partnership-agreement-on-the-future-of-world-beach-games/
