Typhoon-DBC Training every Saturday

Typhoon recognises that the only way for you to know if you'll enjoy a sport is for you to try it first. We offer new paddlers taster sessions and  look forward to welcoming new faces.

Whether you're a beginner or an expert, come and get a taste of the Typhoon experience. This is the step where you could become part of the new generation of Typhoon. If you are up for more of the sport or just want to try out dragonboating then our weekly Saturday sessions at 9:30am are a must! For more information and to sign up for your FREE session email us on

Typhoon Awards

Typhoon Trophies


Every year we reward the commitment and dedication shown by our members by having a vote on each other based on different categories.  This is also where we award our coveted Super Typhoon Awards to the winners of the Super Typhoon Event and we may have a few left over trophies for the captain's awards to members that have shown their value to the club.
