Participants from all backgrounds and skill levels, from beginners to world champions, will have the opportunity to compete for greatness in a diverse range of divisions including the Sue Holloway Cup, named after Olympic medalist and Canadian Sports Hall of Famer for teams who are registered with Dragon Boat Canada. Teams will also hit the water to compete in the Breast Cancer Paddlers (BCP) Cup, teams whose members are breast cancer survivors, Pride Challenge Cup, the first 2SLGBTQ+ dragon boat division in Canada, introduced in 2016 and the Accessibility Challenge Cup for paddlers with a disability, their caregivers and supporters to experience the sport.
