AboutFollowers 18ExhibitorsSpeakersReviewsPhotos 6Travel Deals

Dragon boat festivals are held around the world. Modern festivals typically start with the Awakening of the Dragon, with a Taoist priest (or some other designated official) dotting the eyes of the carved dragon head attached to the boat. Doing so symbolizes the dragon ending its slumber and reenergizing its spirit, or ch'i. Dragon boats normally hold 20 paddlers, each with one oar, sitting two-by-two, plus a steersperson and a drummer to keep everyone in sync. A race is typically a sprint event .. continue reading of several hundred meters, with 500 meters being the most common. Races measuring 200, 1000, and 2000 meters are also standard distances in international competition. Other distances, depending on the size of the body of water, may also be used in local festivals. Dragon boat racing is one of the fastest growing team water sports in the world. In the West, it is especially popular among breast cancer survivors, and its introduction to this group is particularly noteworthy.
