For those who haven’t heard of dragon boat racing, it’s an ancient cultural event originating in China and is more recently, a growing modern day sport. The typical crew of a dragon boat consists of 20 paddlers, one drummer and one steerer. The drummer beats on the drum, located at the font of the boat, in keeping with the rhythm of the paddlers. The steerer directs the boat from the back.
The event is free and open to the public. There is no experience necessary to participate, and the team registration includes all needed equipment. You need only 10 paddlers, plus one drummer. Any further questions, please call the event organizers at 813-570-7693.
