What About ?
Dragon Boat Sport - People Packed and Exciting!
Dragon Boat Competitions, under the IDBF and its Continental Federations (the ADBF and EDBF) have developed intoa serious, high-performance, competitive sport, with many Dragon Boat Associations producing National Teams of elite dragon boat paddlers. IDBF World Championships, EDBF European Championships and ADBFAsian Championships are well established, as are RegionalChampionships in North America. Championship Medals are hard to comeby and well deserved. A whole new ethos and different set of racing values has developed from the Hong Kong International FestivalRaces. There is no other paddle sport in which 22 people work togetherto create a Team result rewarded through the efforts of the whole crew, rather than a few individual performances. This harmony of purpose can only be achieved through many hours of training in the boat, learning to be a complete crew and developing the team spirit and understanding necessary to work together, as one unit, for the common good. 30 years after the first HKIRs, the numbers show the impressive development of Dragon Boat Sport. 50 million Dragon boaters in China and the sport, through the IDBF, has now spread to all continents'.Event Information View Schedule
