By celebrating each victory, we “awake the dragon within”
with encouragement, inspiration, hope, and camaraderie!
The use of Dragon Boats for racing are believed by scholars, sinologists, and anthropologists to have originated in southern central China more than 2500 years ago,
Dragon Boating is an ancient Chinese sport which involves a crew of 20 paddlers, a steersman, and a coxswain racing a distance of up to 500 meters in a 4 ft wide x 40 ft long boat. Internationally, it is one of the fastest growing water sports.
The appeal to dragon boating is mainly contributed to the sport’s ability to accommodate a wide spectrum of skill levels ranging from novice to competitive. At the novice and recreational level, teams often form as a means of social outlet, team building and an alternative means of exercise.
