We are group of women, of all ages, who love to dragon boat. This is our third year of racing.  Our focus is to have fun and improve our skills. We practice once a week and, in 2019, our team is became a full season team that paddles from May to September.  No dragon boat experience is necessary as this is an easy sport to get started in. Together, we can build a sense of belonging, inclusion and achievement. Come join us!!

Our coach for 2020 has been confirmed as Catharine MacInnis.  Catharine has a wealth of dragon boat racing experience, including working for Great White North as a race Starter.  Her enthusiasm and positive attitude is a great asset for the Let Her Ride team. 

2021 Jan 02 Update: Registration for all teams for 2021 will not open until we develop a safe plan to proceed. Rest assured this is a core team that will rise up again. For now, we are leaving up the old details for 2020 so you get a sense of what this new team is all about.

LP Dragons

This is the fifth year for this team. Join us and spend your summer months enjoying the paddling, camaraderie, and fresh air on waterfront that comes with this team. New this year is monthly video review - where we take video of team paddling and can look at it later to identify areas where the team can improve. This is an invaluable tool to becoming a better team. We have two dedicated co-captains identified very early on to help plan for an amazing year!
