Spain joins EDBF & IDBF
27 January 2008 -In Spain, seventeen (17) clubs have formally constituted the Association of Spanish Dragon Boats (AEDB) following the GAISF decision to admit IDBF into Membership. The Spanish Canoe Federation accepted the GAISF view that dragon boating is not canoeing and told those canoe clubs interested in dragon boating to form an independent DBA. This they did by forming the AEDB and at its first Extraordinary Assembly, on 26 September 2007, the AEDB elected its first President and Officials and joined the IDBF and EDBF.
