What is Dragon Boat Racing?
Dragon boating is a fun-filled, adrenaline pumping, water sports activity. Teams compete in Dragon Boats, which are large canoe-like vessels fitted with ornately carved dragon’s heads and tails.
Crews of up to 16 people sit in pairs and paddle to compete in races over distances of around 250m. Each boat has a drummer beating time to keep the paddlers in unison and a professional helmsperson in the stern to guide the boat.
Originating in ancient China, Dragon Boat Racing is now the fastest growing water sport in the world and a favourite among corporations for its team-building benefits.
