Dragon Events and the Alkmaar Dragon Boat Club team Dynamic Dragons would like to welcome your team to the Dutch Open Dragon Boat Championships in Amsterdam. The historic Bosbaan regatta course serves as the location of the Netherlands Dragon Boat Federation national championships, and this year the organizing committee is inviting teams from Europe and overseas to join the small, but ambitious field of Dutch competitors in Amsterdam on 24 September during the championships.

The organizing committee has reserved 10 racing slots for foreign teams. All races will be run in the open class, at all official EDBF distances: 200m, 500m & 2000m. The awards ceremony will be held during the closing party on Saturday night (giving teams a chance to tour Amsterdam on Sunday or travel back home). The entry fee for teams will be 185 euro per crew (just under 10 euro per person for a crew of 20 people).You may bring your own IDBF-spec boat or rent an IDBF-spec boat from the organizers (150 euro per crew).

The races will be run according to EDBF /IDBF racing rules, under the auspices of the NDBF and will be hosted by Dragon Events and the Alkmaar Dragon Boat Club. There are ample camping and hotel facilities in Amsterdam and the surrounding area.

Registration deadline for foreign teams is 1 September, payment deadline 17 September.

    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
