training times

Dragon boat racing develops core strength, endurance, coordination and team spirit.  Members train for and compete in races held in the UAE including Dubai.  The team usually also completes internationally once a year.  Dragon boat racing is a fantastic outdoor and team watersport.
Regular training is conducted at the Dubai Marina:
  • Saturday 8:15am to 9:35am
  • Monday 5:15am to 6:35am
  • Thursday 5:15am to 6:35am

These times are actual on the water training times.  We meet at the training site 15 minutes before training for warm-up e.g. 5:00am on Monday and Thursday and 8:00am on Saturday.
