Our team formed in the spring of 2015 with a handful of cancer survivors and has grown to over 25 members. Many of our dedicated teammates are Survivor Support persons. We honor that role & have a few paddling with the team.Website
The Unsinkables are an outgoing group of women who paddle for health, healing and hope. We enjoy being out in nature and using our bodies in a new, empowering way. In addition to dragon boating, our team enjoys getting together to enjoy other activities or going for a bite to eat, especially tacos.
We attend several races every year. We have participated in International competition three years running! Knowing individuals have had previous and continued health challenges, the team works to implement new paddling techniques that are designed to be competitive and safer for our joints, tendons, and muscles. Our team culture is inviting, inclusive, and supportive. We come in all ages, sizes, shapes, and physical fitness levels. Many of our members are considered masters (age 50+) and grand masters (age 60+) therefore we also race in those specialty divisions.
