Or if you are still wondering… What is Dragon Boat Racing? Equal parts sporting event and spectacle, dragon boating is a team sport that has its roots in ancient China. In the last 25 years, dragon boating has been revitalized, and is one of the fastest-growing water sports in the world. A dragon boat is a long, colorful boat, similar to a racing canoe. Each 42 foot long boat is propelled by a crew of 20 paddlers, a drummer and steer person. Races take place in heats on a 250 meter course, right off of City Deck.
