Dragon Boat Racing

ABOUT THE SPORT

What is Dragon Boat Racing?

Dragon boating is a fast, fun and furious team-based paddling sport. Its origins can be traced back 2500 years ago to ancient China where races played an important role during religious ceremonies and festivals.

Across the world today thousands of paddlers, from the ages of twelve to over sixty, compete in various events from local social races to huge international regattas.

Whether it be for fitness, friends, competition or fun dragon boating caters for all!

There are currently 3,200 members of Dragon Boats NSW residing in all corners of the state from Ballina in the North to Jindabyne in the South.

There are currently over sixty affiliated dragon boat clubs scattered around the waterways of New South Wales each sporting their own individual culture. These clubs are all members of DBNSW and therefore adhere to the sporting and ethical guidelines bound by their membership.

The Central Coast provides options for social and competitive Dragon Boat Racing and welcomes new participants and volunteers of all ages!
