Welcome to the River City Dragons website.


The River City Dragons are a group of highly competitive dragon boaters based out of Winnipeg, Manitoba.  In the years that the team has been together, they have raced in Winnipeg, Brandon, Regina, Calgary and of course Kelowna.  In September 2007, RCD traveled to Kelowna and dominated the event winning first place overall.  Due to that win, a berth in the ICF World Dragonboat Championship in Poland was achieved.  Members of RCD  competed in Poland in September 2008 as part of Team Canada and again in 2012 in Italy.  Here's how RCD has done in 2012 and 2013:
