The Dragon Boat,

What is it ?

A sport...

A Dragon Boat is a paddle-powered boat steered by a helmsperson with a rudder. Traditionally, the boat is made of 2 rows of 10 paddlers each accompanied by a drummer who sets the pace with a drum. The Dragon Boat is a richly decorated boat, easily recognisable with a dragon's head and tail.

...with strong values

The dragon boat's VIP? It's the team! Because the key is synchronisation. And that's what makes it the ultimate team sport. Outside of the races, long hurdles and cheers enliven Dragon Boat events.
