Paddling

Living in Vancouver, you cannot walk the Seawall without seeing dragon boat teams practicing on the water and individuals in small boats paddling. Hoping to join in on the sport, I joined a competitive dragon boat team (Dragon Hearts Beat) in 2010.  Racing at festivals and getting to know more people in the paddling community eventually led me to paddle in a variety of other watercraft as well over the next few years including stand-up paddle board, outrigger canoe and sprint canoe.
