Competitive Dragon Boat Events

What to expect ....

Race fee: $$ Amount varies by event and is paid by each paddler.  You can view payment methods on the Pay Dues page or pay by cash/check to our Treasurer.

Hotel: Co-Captains will reserve blocks of rooms, usually at the hotel-of-choice of the event.  Paddlers can make arrangements with teammates to share a room, or not, then make &  pay for their room from the reserved block reservation.  Expect a 1 to 2 night stay.  The one exception is the event in Beaufort, SC.  That's a day trip.

Getting there: We'll get a conversation going prior to Race Day to help coordinate carpools and/or caravans.


Food: We always have a water and food table on Race Day. Co-Captains will help coordinate who brings what. Meals are on your own, but do generally get together somewhere after the race. 

Race Day Details: A Co-Captain or Coach will provide detailed information regarding where and when to arrive for Race Day events. 

What to bring to the race....

  • PFD & paddle - or use what's provided at the event

  • Team jersey and other team SWAG

  • Sun protection... we will have a tent, but it's often hot under there

  • Closed-toe shoes - Race Organizers often require this!

  • Chair or towel to sit on between races

  • Chair or towel to sit on between races.
