What is Dragonboat?

Dragon Boat Racing is the oldest continually raced sport in the world, originating in the 4th century BC on China’s Mi Luo River. Imported to the West in the mid 1980’s, Dragon Boat Racing has since become the second most popular sport in the world captivating people both with its competitiveness and sense of community.

In a 40 foot long boat with a sculpted dragon head and tail, twenty men and women paddle in a synchronized rhythm to outlast their competitors. In addition to the adrenaline rush from the race, dragon boating also fosters a strong bond between teammates and other teams which is unmatched in any sport.
