Club and Team Sponsors

We are privileged to have the support of several sponsors. But there is always room for more – either for the club or for any of the teams. Depending on the level of sponsorship, sponsors can get various levels of recognition including team naming rights. We will be happy to discuss sponsorship options for next season.

In partnership with CanSurvive, VDC embarked on the construction of 2 small dragonboats. Sponsors for these include Bunnings Warehouse, Resene and WelTec as well as Abode Air Conditioning who provided the construction space and Hutt City Council for storage space.

Upper Hutt Cossie Club – provided financial support to offset some of the team entry fees. This helped VDC to commit to entering two teams for this season.


Paddy Harris – who generously acquired (and then donated) two sets of practice paddles for the club so we could start practising a local swimming pool in advance of the boats becoming available.
