Noukhada Dragons – The Club  |   Noukhada Dragons has been built from our longstanding love for kayaking and canoeing  |   We are currently based at our Eastern Mangrove Marina location with a total of four Dragonboats (“DB”) (2 x 20 seater and 2 x 10 seater)  |   We have a full time coach (Kayak and DB) who will develop the club and teams within the club  |   Our aim is to develop a number of teams at varying levels and have training and regular races amongst ourselves in order to better prepare for competitive racing  |   Of course, we hope to have fun and meet new people along the way!  |     Training  |   We have training sessions on Mon, Tue, Wed and Thu mornings  |   Meet at 8.30am for a 9am start finishing at 10.30am  |   The Mon and Wed morning training sessions are for the first team to be formed under the Noukhada Dragons umbrella, the “Dragon Jets”  |   We can offer training sessions, but need at least 6 pax, to make this happen  |     Membership benefits

 

 

Locations  |   We are currently based at our Eastern Mangrove Marina location but have a number of other Abu Dhabi locations coming up in 2017  |    We are hoping to place a DB at each of these new locations to help grow the club and create regular racing
