Breast Cancer Outrigger V12

The 2022 World Sprints also features another World First! For the first time ever, Breast Cancer outrigger racing will occur in 12-person crews.

Outrigger is an important sport to improve the health and wellbeing of anyone who has an experience of cancer, especially breast cancer, through physical activity.

The aim of the event is to offer friendly racing in a supportive environment. We are particularly keen to offer Breast Cancer dragon boat paddlers/ teams from around the world the opportunity to compete in outrigger at the 2022 World Sprint Championships.
