RegattaSport Partners with Dragon Boat Niagara 2015

Dragon Boat Niagara 2015 is delighted to announce Niagara's own RegattaSport as the Official Apparel Partner and Volunteer Outfitter for the two international championships taking place at the Welland International Flatwater Centre this August.

Opening their doors March 1988 in Port Dalhousie, RegattaSport was inspired by two world-class rowers who saw a need for athletic wear. RegattaSport's roots are firmly planted here in Niagara where they produce technical racing and training apparel, across a number of sports, outfitting teams from all over the world at all levels – including the Olympics. RegattaSport co-owner Chris Cookson states “RegattaSport is proud to be the Official Apparel Partner of Dragon Boat Niagara 2015 and we look forward to welcoming the athletes from around the world for Dragon Boat Niagara 2015. We wish success to all the Organizing Committee and competitors on the water this coming August."

Attracting up to 4,000 participants from 30+ countries, Dragon Boat Niagara 2015 is a unique combination of two (2) international dragon boat racing championships together in Welland, Ontario from August 12-23, 2015: Pan American Club Crew Dragon Boat Championships (August 14 – 16) and the International Dragon Boat Federation (IDBF) 12th World Dragon Boat Racing Championships (August 18-23).

Official apparel of Dragon Boat Niagara 2015 and the Championships will be available online leading up to the events and available for purchase at the Venue throughout the competition. RegattaSport will be outfitting some 400 plus volunteers, staff and officials. “With the world coming, being able to award the position of Official Apparel Partner and Volunteer Outfitter to RegattaSport, an internationally respected, local company, is an important example of the businesses we have in Niagara, and the economic benefit Dragon Boat Niagara 2015 and sport tourism has in the local and regional economy," suggested Stephen Fischer, Executive Director of the Welland Recreational Canal Corporation and the Welland International Flatwater Centre.

German senior men’s canoe polo team dedicates gold medal to fallen teammate

Sep 6th, 2018

Germany nearly won it all on the water after losing so much off of it. Only a 3-2 loss to Great Britain in the men's under-21 final prevented Germany from sweeping all four divisions at the 2018 International Canoe Federation Canoe Polo World Championships in Welland.


  • The 2013 Junior and U23 champs was the most wonderful experience for us in South Africa. Although our kayak community is relatively small, we are an intense group of loyal supporters. Following the build-up on your website as well as your Facebook and the photos on WIFC Facebook page was the highlight of my day. Not only mine but many of us shared links from early morning. Thanks for the effort and a huge congratulations on your achievement. The live streaming gave many of us goose bumps and the occasional lump in the throat. I checked many comments by parents all over the globe, don`t worry, we are all the same, from Japan, Canada, Africa. Thanks for sharing the wonderful experience. Today I could watch my son`s semi-final on Youtube, tonight we will watch it again and every day I will check Youtube for new uploads.
