VDC is the largest dragon boat club in the Wellington region

Established in 2009 we are an energetic group of dragonboaters. Our club is made up of people from all over and from all age groups, in 2019 we have 4 teams paddling:

  • Green Machine in the Open (mixed) division
  • Hutt Valley Heat in the Women’s division
  • Silver Dragons in the Masters (40+) division
  • 4th B with U Open (mixed) division

Ready to take on any challenge we have been around a fair bit, from Sydney to Bali, even over to Masterton.

The dragon boat season in Wellington starts late December and goes until mid March with scheduled events in the cooler months.

Whether you are interested in competitive or recreational paddling, we will have a team for you.

All training is located in Wellington City. Launching from Frank Kits lagoon. We have coaches and skilled paddlers who can provide all the training you need.
