Dragon Boat Festivals

FGPC and COVID-19

NEW: FGPC Gorge Festival 500-metre dragon boat regatta scheduled for Saturday 13 June has been CANCELLED; Gorge Festival 2021 will be held on 12 June 2021. FGPC’s decision-making matrix for program and event timelines are available on our website: www.fgpaddle.com/about-us/safety/ matrix for program and event timelines are available on our website: www.fgpaddle.com/about-us/safety/

FGPC Super Sprints 200-metre dragon boat regatta scheduled for Sunday 24 May has been CANCELLED; Super Sprints 2021 will be held on 23 May 2021.


FGPC will issue a “heads-up” notice for each event 6 weeks before the event date. The six-week notice will provide teams with a five-week window to either prepare their teams and register if we are able to safely run the event, or stand down and consider the next race on the schedule. Decisions that affect each FGPC-hosted race will follow a consistent timeline that you can monitor, available HERE.

The 2020 year will require careful monitoring and potential cancellations. In order to provide our paddlers and teams with additional certainly, we have scheduled and secured dates for our events, races and festivals in 2021. These event dates are listed below, and 2021 registrations will open on 15 July 2020 at early bird rates until 15 April 2021.


Welcome to Dragon Boat Racing at Fairway Gorge Paddling Club!

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 travelling 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 info@fgpaddle.com, and we’ll introduce you to a like-minded team in the Victoria area.
