NBP New Paddler Day

Nathan Benderson Park 5851 Nathan Benderson Circle, Sarasota, FL

If you've been curious about a great workout, a great way to make friends and an opportunity to be part of a team and something larger than self... try dragon boat paddling! There's room for you in the boat! Come learn about Nathan Benderson Park's world-class paddling program and take a spin — no strings attached, no fee involved — as a paddler for the morning Aug. 27. Meet us on Regatta Island, down by the boat storage/launch docks. You'll start with on-land training, proper fit of a personal flotation device and paddle, and then get an on-the-water orientation. Anyone and everyone in our community is welcome, and the NBP Paddling Program includes competitive and recreational opportunities. On race days, paddlers divide into categories for men, women, breast-cancer survivors, all-cancer survivors, military veterans, seniors, and more. The NBP Paddling Program earned six world championships at the International Dragon Boat Federation Club Crew World Championships in July. Each of those paddlers started the same way you can, and you can train to win, too!
