Staged along the waterfront of Montreal’s scenic Promenade Père-Marquette in Lachine, the annual FL Fuller Landau Cedars Dragon Boat Race is a full day of competition and festivities.
Participation to our event begins well before race day! Corporate and friends and family teams of 20 paddlers per dragon boat, sign up throughout the year. Each team must raise a minimum of $12,500 prior to race day ($625 per paddler).
