Jacksonville Dragon Boat Club
JDBC currently has THREE OC-1's (Single Seat Ocean Canoe) for your use. These are great for strenghtening your stroke! Before signing up for use, you need to attend the OC-101 course, regardless of your experience. This course will be taught by Drew, Marty, or Karen Schindler. You will need to arrange attendance for the 101 Course with one of the coaches by contacting them personally. Their phone numbers are provided below. Once you have attended the course and been approved by one of these coaches, you will be able to sign up to paddle with a buddy. No paddling alone will be allowed...buddy paddling only. If you have a friend who wants to paddle in a kayak with you in the OC-1, that is fine...we simply do not want anyone out by themselves. All paddlers must wear a pfd while paddling. Water shoes are recommended, as bulky tennis shoes, etc. may interfere with the steering pedals. Bring your PFD, water bottle & dragon boat paddle. Boats are located on racks in boat storage area across the water from our building in the fenced area. Park in the parking lot at the east end of Beach Marine (where the large building houses boats) and walk over. Please review the available slots and click on the button to sign up once you have completed the course. Enjoy your OC-1 time! If you have questions, please contact Drew at 402-0260, Marty at 536-3475, or Karen at 923-9378.
