Dragon Boat Racing is the biggest participation sport in the world, bigger even than soccer. Countries from five continents took part in the 2003 World Nations Championships in Poznan. Great Britain enters all three divisions in international competition, Junior (18 and Under), Premier and Senior (40 and over). In the Premier and Senior divisions there are Ladies and Open crews, with a combination of both competing as a mixed crew. On the World stage, Great Britian’s dragonboat racing crews have showed that they are highly competitive, winning medals at all levels of competition in recent years.
In the UK there are numerous Dragon Boat events, many for charity, raising thousands of pounds. There is also a National League with two divisions, Premier and Standard, run by the British Dragon Boat Association.
Dragon Boating is a great way to get fit, keep fit, have fun and make new friends
