2019 Pan Am Club Crew Championships
March 19-24, 2019 - Trinidad and Tobago

From Keith Dalip, President of Trinidad and Tobago Dragon Boat Federation:

We would love to have you come to our beautiful Tobago and participate in a robust competition on a lively course. And we would love to show you who we are as a people and where we paddle. Call it the "Trini" Pan Am Experience if you will.

The competition will be officiated by a team of International Dragon Boat Federation Race Officials from our Pan American region. And we “Trinbagonians” know how to show our visitors a good time, so we are deadly serious about ensuring that you have a great dragon boat island experience!

More details will follow in subsequent bulletins but here is some preliminary information:
