Race Management

Don Mulhall has been the race director for the Penticton Dragon Boat Festival for all of its years. Formerly with GO Rowing & Paddling Association, Don has cultivated a solid race management team with many of the former staff and volunteers who gained their experience running some of the best dragon boat and outrigger events in the province.  Here in the Okanagan, we provide race operations for the Kamloops, Salmon Arm, and Osoyoos dragon boat festivals, as well as the BC and Canada Senior Games.

Using Millennium dragon boats, our fleet is consistently trouble-free, and ‘consistently consistent’ (identical hulls in all races – not a combination of different boats and manufacturers).

Don was recently recognized by the Canadian Outrigger Racing Association (CORA).  Nominated to the CORA Hall of Fame in 2022, he was also awarded the Hugh Town Memorial Builder award in 2021.
