An exhilarating, enjoyable sport. Excellent for team-building.
What’s It all About?
The teams will paddle what looks like an oversized canoe with an ornately carved dragons head at the front and a tail at the rear. A drum is positioned at the front with a drummer furiously banging the drum to keep the rest of the crew in time. A qualified helmsman steers the boat from the rear and helps to co-ordinate the team’s efforts so that they are all paddling at the same speed.
Dragon boating is not only an exhilarating and enjoyable sport but also an excellent exercise in team-building. It is essential for dragon boat teams to work together, making use of each member’s individual strengths in order to ensure that their team delivers the best possible performance in their races. The winning team will be the team that successfully works together, communicating with each other, with the help of the drummer, to ensure that they work as a unified team.
