Why Dragon Boats?
Dragon Boating is a great teamsport on the water where 22 athletes have the same goal which is to show that a team can achieve much more than an individual.

The group success brings a great celebration and happiness after the training and the race.
If you are a bigger stag do than 10 persons, you can have several boats or one big boat.
