Modern Dragon Boat

Boat crew consists of 18 – 20 paddlers in a standard boat or 8 – 10 paddlers in a small boat. Additional crew members are helmsman (also named coxwain or steerperson) and a drummer.

There are different types of Dragon Boat disciplines, and race distances are from 200m to 2000m.

This is a unique water sport in which 22 rowers fight together for the same goal!

The result comes from the effort of the whole crew, not just from the individual!

International Dragon Boat federation is founded in 1991.

Today, after more than two decades, numbers show an impressive development of Dragon Boat sport on every continent. Dragon Boat community has over 50 million of registered paddlers worldwide. The number of recreative Dragon Boat fans is much bigger!
