Dragon Boat

Dragon Boat racing is a sport where a very long and narrow boat decorated with Chinese dragon heads and tails, is powered by a team of 10 to 50 paddlers.

It originated in China and is required to carry a large drum aboard that leads the crew throughout a race with the rhythmic beating that indicates the timing and frequency of paddling strokes, from the cadence to picking up the pace to slowing down.

Modern dragon boat racing is organised at an international level by the International Dragon Boat Federation (IDBF).

Sport racing distances are normally over 200 m or 250 m, 500 m, 1000 m and 2000 m, with formal Rules of Racing.

Dragon Boat racing was incorporated into the Asian Beach Games in 2008 and the Asian Games in 2010.

Dragon Boat racing is a sport where a very long and narrow boat is powered by a team of 10 to 50 paddlers. It originated in China and dragon boats are always rigged with decorative Chinese dragon heads and tails and are required to carry a large drum aboard that leads the crew throughout a race with the rhythmic beating that indicates the timing and frequency of paddling strokes, from the cadence to picking up the pace to slowing down.

Dragon Boat or "dragonboat" (traditional Chinese: ??or ??; simplified Chinese: ?? or ??; pinyin: l?ngzh?u, l?ngchu?n) is a very long and narrow human-powered boat now used in the team paddling sport of dragon boat racing which originated in China in pre-Christian times.

While competition has taken place annually for more than 20 centuries as part of folk ritual, it emerged in modern times as an international "sport" in Hongkong in 1976.

Like running, horse racing and marksmanship, the racing of dragon boats is among mankind's oldest organized competitions.
