Ron Pelletier - Eyes in the Boat (Montreal QC) Reflections of a Blind Athlete

From world-champion in lawn bowling and now dragon boater with the Caravela team for blind and partially-sighted paddlers, Ron Pelletier doesn’t take breaks from competitive sports. After retiring from lawn bowling, the blind athlete was looking for a team sport to join, and the energy, drive, and camaraderie of dragon boating just fit the bill. Sponsored by the Habilitas Foundation, Caravela is the first of its kind in Quebec and is affiliated with 22Dragons at the Lachine Canal. Dragon boating is a particularly good match for blind individuals as it requires minimal adaptations. Through verbal cues and specifics for improving paddling technique, the team has demonstrated their grit to the dragon boat community. Read More about Ron's story here.
