We are Port Edgar Dragons!

The only cancer survivor's Dragon Boat group in the East of Scotland

Welcome to our page!

We have a boat on Edinburgh's Union Canal at Bridge 8 Hub which is our  main paddling site and another at Port Edgar (South Queensferry) where we paddle in the Marina overlooked by the three Forth Bridges.

Aimed primarily at those recovering from breast cancer – and their supporters – the team was established in 2010 with support from Paddlers for Life, a UK wide breast cancer dragon boat network.


We paddle each Saturday during spring summer and autumn with a break from paddling during the winter months.

We welcome anyone who would like to try this amazing sport -  this means anyone who has had a cancer diagnosis, their family and friends, and anyone interested in supporting the team.   Come and have a go!  Your first paddle is free!
