April 2013 Survey Says!
The DDRA distributed an important survey for athletes, coaches, and truck/trailer drivers in April 2013 and the results were presented to the DDRA executive for review at their meeting on May 13, 2013.  A summary of the survey is available by clicking HERE.  Thank you to the 276 people who took the time to complete the survey and provide valuable feedback. An announcement will be made soon to all member clubs regarding answers to the questions and issues raised. 


Good luck to all Canada Day Regatta participants!

> FERRY: The Centre Island ferry schedule has been arranged to start earlier at 7:30am by the DDRA (and runs every 30 minutes).  You can buy your tickets on race day or in blocks of 10 in advance at 10% savings.  They are available at the ferry terminal gate at the foot of Bay Street by the water.  All participants are encouraged to catch the earliest ferry they can as this is a busy holiday weekend and there will be thousands of people flocking to the Island!

> HISTORICAL RECORDS: Note that we have an initiative under way to start collecting digital copies of any historical records and information related to the DDRA.  This includes past programs, newspaper articles, etc.  More details will be provided soon on calendar years that we are missing our official Programs.  We have a great history that we want to share with all past and present participants.  Please contact Judy as detailed below if you can help us!  Thank you.  See ARCHIVES page.
The mandate of the DDRA is to organize and run the annual mixed sport Canada Day Regatta at Toronto's Centre Island.   This historic event is very unique event in that the races alternate between rowing, canoe, kayak, and dragon boat races.  The year 2013 marks the 129th year since the inception of this event!
