Who We Are
We're a quirky, inclusive group with a passion for dragon boat racing. We are one team with one mission: to foster a culture of teamwork, accountability and healthy competition. We believe in being true to yourself and your crew, living life 200 meters at a time, and always being yourself (unless you can be a dragon—then you should always, always, be a dragon). We strive for progression, not perfection. And though we believe you're never too old to paddle, there are no passengers here!
We have traveling men's, women's and co-ed crews of various ages (18-39; 40+; 50+). New for 2017 are our local men's and women's leagues - no lengthy commitment or travel requirement. We paddle for fun and race to win—come see for yourself!
Our outdoor season runs mid-May to mid-September, and our indoor season from November to mid-May (we take the month of October off to enjoy lots of other crazy activities).
Men's and Women's Racing Leagues
5 weeks. 10 teams. 1 champion. If you're competitive, can paddle like you stole something, and surrender is not a word in your vocabulary, then this is for you!
Men's league: Tuesdays in June
