FFB Matters

FFB Matters

Dragon boating is an enjoyable and safe water sport, but as with all other sporting activities, care must be taken at all times to avoid unnecessary risks and accidents.

The safety and welfare of all paddlers is of the highest importance and FFB takes this responsibility very seriously.

A few simple rules and guidelines will ensure that everyone participating is safe and has a fun and energetic workout.

The Coach/Sweep on each boat is responsible for the welfare of the crew, and all paddlers must respect and follow their instructions at all times.
