Our Story

In the past 10 years, dragon boating has grown from relative obscurity to 80,000 participants who take part in over 100 festivals in municipalities across the country. Dragon boating is visually spectacular, easy to learn, and most importantly, extremely safe. Anyone can do it, regardless of age, gender, or athletic ability. Furthermore, it is a sport where men and women compete together in an unbiased and fun environment. For these reasons it has become an extremely popular team building activity for community organizations and corporations.
