About our club
Our club celebrates its 20 years anniversary this year and is a long standing and respected part of the Basel community. The Dragon boat team has been going strong due to the hard work and dedication of the team of organisers at the club who have ensured that the sport of Dragon boat racing will be kept alive on the river Rhine for years to come.
The club is committed to promote the sport not only for the young people in the community, but also to all the mixed communities from all different ethnic backgrounds who live and work in the Basel area.
The club works with a strong motto of working with teams rather than against others and most of all to have fun whilst in competition.
The club is about the members and the community and you are invited to become one of our team.
The team is led by our President Francois Ryffel and Top Swiss Dragon boat coach Iris Huber who is the coach of the Swiss national team.
