Welcome to the 2017 season of Dragon Boat Racing at Fairway Gorge Paddling Club!
This year again we’re offering reduced rates for teams travelling to Vancouver Island at all FGPC-managed races, including the Victoria Festival. We hope this encourages more fun—and more competition across all divisions—by bringing new and returning visitors to next year’s Vancouver Island race season.
Early bird discounts are available for all races, including the Victoria Festival, until 15 April 2017, after which regular fees apply. The on-line registration system is the same for all events as you see below. Team captains will find the process a pleasure to manage, with online payments and excellent email and telephone support to help you along the way. Our goal is to ensure that paddlers arrive on race day mornings with a minimum of administrative stress and a maximum amount of energy ready for what you do best: paddle.
Teams traveling from off island for whom hotel costs may prevent them from racing now have the option of being billeted by one of FGPC’s host teams. If your team is interested in being hosted and billeted by a local team, contact email@example.com, and we’ll introduce you to a like-minded team in the Victoria area.

Note: Early Bird pricing in effect until April 15, 2017.
Local teams are on Vancouver Island (i.e. do not require a ferry trip to compete). Junior teams receive a 50% discount on applicable registration fees.
