  • We Have Hired Steers!

    Thank you for your ongoing patience as we recruited qualified steers for the 2016 Barrie Dragon Boat Festival paddler practices.

    We are happy to share with you that as of July 4th, we will have four steers available; they are currently attending paddler clinics and eager to get you on the water.

    All practices that have currently been requested are now approved.  Steers will be assigned two weeks prior to each practice.

    Prior to your team practice we are asking all captains to ensure that everyone on your team has their waivers completed.  Each paddler should have their own login information and can upload the waiver.  Note: no paper waivers will be accepted.

    If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me, Bruce MacGillivray, Captain Liaison Committee Member at
