Dragon Hearts Magnum Boat Launch

On Sunday, April 7, 2019, we paid tribute to the crew of Dragon Hearts Magnum.

Magnum was founded by Stephanie Chan, Burnaby South HS 2003. The team, captained by Denis Tran, retired in 2010, reaching the no. 6 world ranking of the Major League Dragon Boating. Today, many of the members are involved in our dragon boat community as coaches, organizers and leaders. Dragon Hearts DB Racing Club is very proud. We honor their achievement and dedication to this sport.

A BUK, courtesy of Dragon Boat B.C., was launched in their name. All the Best!

Dragon Hearts – Our Story

When I first joined, my hope was to bring some hardware home. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect that I would get something even better than a medal…..meeting great people, eating to my heart’s content, forming friendships, paddling with gusto!, having soooooooo much fun, eating (again!), feeling the positive energy of our club, getting encouragement from each other, going to all the great festivals and regattas and the socials…..these are things I take away with me! – Carrie J.
