The Gold Crew, coached by Tim Schaus, is a predominantly master’s (35+) racing dragon boat team with a competitive spirit and a welcoming culture. The team focuses on fitness, racing and the social aspect of being a member of a team. The Gold Crew races the maritime circuit of dragon boat festivals, one festival a year in Ontario and many members participate in the Dartmouth Dragon Boat Association Race League series.
Through the paddling season, the Gold Crew practices on Monday and Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm and on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am. Practices take about an hour and focus on paddling fitness, race preparation and stroke mechanics.
