DHVT began in 2004 as a breast cancer survivor dragon boat team. Today, we are this and so much more. Dragonheart Vermont stands as a 200-member club (and growing) with 10 different teams catering to survivors and supporters; males and females; young and not-so-young athletes; recreational to elite paddlers. We work together to get fitter and stronger while having a blast! The fact is we have become good at paddling. Some of our teams have raced dragon boats all around the world and are national and world champs. All of our teams enjoy paddling together and laughing together. There is nothing like the rush of racing a dragon boat and feeling the wind in our faces and the glide that occurs when 20 paddlers are paddling as one!
Public Race Schedule
During the 2021 season COVID-19 again limited our teams’ ability to compete, including at the US National Championships in October.
We are looking forward to opportunities in 2022 to compete regionally in the U.S. and Canada and hope to send four teams to the Club Crew World Championships in Sarasota, Florida in July.
