Interested in dragon boating, but not sure were to start? Rocky Point Sailing and Rocky Point Dragon Boating are partnering to put on a program just for you!
This 4 week program runs on Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm to 8:30 pm starting Tuesday August 4th and starts at the very basics of dragon boating, working towards learning to race.
Each 2 hour session includes warm ups, 1.0 hour on the water, and cool down. Paddles and Personal Floatation Devise (PFDs) are provided. No paddling experience required. The only prerequisite is wanting to have fun on the water.

Thanks to everyone who showed up for the rigging day yesterday.
There will be boat maintenance work to do on Boat In/Out day for the 420's. This will take some extra time.
There will be four categories to hopefully help make things go faster.
- Mast rigging
- Centreboard lines and function
- Centerboard gaskets
From yesterday we have volunteers to head up the organization of the work on these categories.
Parts locator information from Laser Performance and Zim Sailing (420 Manufacturers) are available at these links to their pdf files.
Rocky Point Sailing Association is proud to announce that we now have the ability to accept registration for our programs online, and that we can now accept payment by credit card!
