What is a Dragon Boat? Essentially, it’s a 40 foot canoe with 20 paddlers, a drummer to maintain the cadence, and a sweep or steers-person. The paddlers sit side-by-side in rows of two, and work together in unison to propel the boat for recreation, fitness, or competition. Read more here.
What’s in it for me? Well, Dragon Boating is super fun, high spirited, and a great team-building experience! It’s easy to learn, extremely safe, and an activity where men and women can paddle and/or compete side by side towards the same goal. Regardless how old, young, big or little: once a paddler is in stroke, he or she is contributing to his team.
