As a competitive sport, Dragon Boating is considered one of the toughest sport as it is not only physically demanding but mentally challenging too. It is the only sport that requires the teamwork of 10 people practising the same paddling actions simultaneously! While it may be challenging competitively, it can also be a leisurely row of the boat at your own pace. At the same time, your fellow paddlers will learn to work together to make the boat move most efficiently! What can be better than having fun while fostering bonds at the same time?
Dragon Boating is also one of the oldest sports around. It has its roots in ancient China where it was once used for religious purposes as a way of appeasing the rain gods. Dragon Boat Races came about to commemorate an ancient warrior and poet name Qu Yuan. It has a history of over 2000 years!
