  • Dragon Boating represents one of the coolest asian cultural activities introduced to the West. You start by putting 22 people get onto a 40' long canoe and with 20 paddlers a drummer and steerer - and see how they work together towards moving the boat about the waterway! Although the task itself is simple, the process of learning as individuals to become a team holds the challenge and the fun.
  • WE WANT YOU! Women's BCS Dragon Boat teams represent a fast growing sector of the dragon boating community around the world. These teams serve as a refreshing physical activity for individuals and a unique support group for those fighting a common battle.
