Welcome to Perth’s premier dragon boat club.

Our club offers the following fantastic opportunities to get fit and enjoy a great social life:

Dragon Boating is a fun, social sport catering for different levels of fitness and ability. If you are interested in training hard, being an integral part of a team and winning, then our open, women or mixed team is what you are after.  However if you are more interested in having just a fun paddle, with less intense training demands, our Wednesday night social paddling may be more to your liking.

CDBC, or ‘Blades’ as it is affectionately known, is a socially active club. You can stay for coffee at the Yacht Club after Sunday paddling or for a meal on Wednesday or Thursday nights. Social evenings are organised leading up to a regatta and there are often opportunities to attend other events as a Club. Fundraising is also a very important part of the club as this helps with the purchase of equipment and also subsidizes interstate and overseas travel for competitions.

All training is based at East Fremantle Yacht Club, Petra Street, East Fremantle.
