Dragon Boat Racing is the ultimate team building challenge and one of the fastest growing water sports in the world. Imagine 21 paddlers trying to move as one, all in a 46 foot dragon boat! It’s a blast. It takes focus, timing, communication and cooperation. Long after the ride is over, the pride and purpose remain to become building blocks for the future.
