Dragon Boat Racing –
Dragon boats racing originated over 2500 years ago in south central China. The sport has a rich fabric of ancient ceremonial, ritualistic, and religious traditions and is the basis for annual water rituals, festivals, and veneration of the dragon water deity.
Each Dragon Boat has 20 paddlers, a steersperson, and a drummer. Victory is achieved only through the synchronized efforts of the whole crew, rather than by individual performances. Training and racing together develops team spirit and harmony of purpose. Dragon Boating is perfect for organizational team building, as a community activity, and as a sport for elite athletes. And did we mention, it is great fun, too!!
