Dragon Boat Racing
Written by Catherine Davis   

Dragon boat racing is a water sport in which long, colourful boats compete paddling to the beat of drummers. Courses range from between 200 and 2,000 metres.

The origins of dragon boat racing date back 2,000 years. In ancient Asian tradition, the dragon was revered as a symbol of water, the ruler of rivers and seas, and racing was believed to encourage rainfall.

Dragon boat racing is exciting for participants and spectators alike. While strength, stamina and skill are important, the sport is accessible to all abilities and at all levels of competition, from being part of a 'festival crew' or 'fun team' at a social event to more serious racing. No previous experience is required.

Dragon boat racing is a great way to build camaraderie and team spirit. As a form of cardiovascular exercise, it works the heart and lungs and develops and tones muscles.

Dragon boat racing is a popular way to raise money for charity.
