Updated on 02-22-18
It’s now official, the very first Quebec ice dragon boat festival will be held on February 24, 2018, on Lac Beauport! Our ice dragon boat competition will be part of the Lac-Beauport en neige event. The races will take place in front of the Entourage sur le Lac resort.
A team is made-up of a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 10 paddlers, a drummer (mandatory), a steerer (mandatory) for a total 12 people. Each team can add a maximum of 4 substitutes to its roster.
Mixed teams must be made up of a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 5 paddlers of the same gender (drummer and steerer excluded).
Women’s teams must be made up exclusively of women paddlers, but can include a man or a woman as a steerer or drummer.
On February 24 only, boats will be available for teams for short training sessions before and during the event. As soon as we have the final number of teams registered, a training schedule will be posted.
Each team will race 3 times. The first two races will serve as qualifying rounds. The best result of the two qualifying races will be used to determine in which final round your team will race (A-B-C-D, etc.). Each race will use 3 lanes.
