The Stratford Women's Dragon Boat Team was put together in the spring of '97 by paddlers after participating at the First Annual Dragon Boat Festival the previous fall. The team made a successful entry into the Ontario Dragon Boat race circuit and finished that year by winning the Women's Cup at the Great White North Dragon Boat Challenge at Ontario Place Toronto.
Now going into their 17th year, the Stratford Women's team is one of the longest existing all-female dragon boat team in North America. While usually racing against mixed teams, the crew can hold their own against the mostly bigger and stronger crews The team is looking forward to the 2013 season. The team has recently complete their off-season dryland training and is back on the was back on the river in April. They are always looking to take on new paddlers throughout the season.
