2012

The 2012 season saw New Dragons cement their dominance in the university dragon boating world. We picked up our 7th consecutive TIDBRF University Cup, along with winning University championships in Pickering and Milton. We repeated our achievement of last year, being the only university team to ever make it to TIFBRF A division finals. On the heels of our National Championships victory last year, we traveled to Hong Kong for Club Crew World Championships. We won our second title as Club Crew World Champions in the U23 Mixed categories, and added in the titles of U23 Open World Champions.
