All members of Kingston Royals have to be members of Royal Canoe Club at a cost of £170 per year. This entitles you to the use of the facilities at the Club. The dragon boat section then has a charge of £40 per year for the use of our dragon boats and coaching. Before you become a member trial training sessions are charged at £3 per session however; once you join training sessions are free.
You will need to join the British Dragon Boat Association which costs £30 per year. You will also need to buy a team top (around £35) for racing and a buoyancy aid (around £35) for training in winter. Paddles can be provided but most members opt to buy their own paddles which cost around £70 for a wooden or around £120 for a carbon fibre paddle.
