13th IDBF Club Crew

13th IDBF Club Crew World Dragon Boat Championships, Nathan Benderson Park (NBP), Sarasota, Florida.

Competition days are: Tuesday 19th July - Sunday 24th July 2022

We know this stunning venue very well having held our IBCPC Festival there in October 2014. NBP has become a world class facility and we know that all of the teams will have a fabulous time competing at this wonderful venue.

IDBF Information bulletin number three is complimentary to information bulletin number one and two. These bulletins together serve as a complete guidance with regards to registration and other matters.

We know that a number of our teams from the US will be attending this event and also a German team. There will not be the high BCS record team numbers that had entered to attend France in 2020 which saw 22 breast-cancer teams entered. Understandably the numbers are lower given a reluctance to travel by some people but we are sure that this will be a fabulous event with great participation.

Information bulletin #3 is now available on the IDBF website.
