I tell them (team) that dragon boating is different from all other team sports. It is a sport where a group of individuals have to become as one individual.


Dragon boat racing is the world's fastest growing water sport. It originates from China and the legend of one man, Qu Yuan, who was a popular politician and poet 2000 years ago. Disillusioned by the political future of his province, in his despair he committed suicide by drowning himself in the Miluo river.

Upon hearing of this tragic act, local fisherman jumped into their long, narrow canoes and raced out to save him. They never found his body and the legend has it that the river dragon took away the body and spirit of this much loved and noble statesman.


In many parts of China and Asia on the 5th day of the 5th lunar month, dragon boat races are held to celebrate this tragic event. Today dragon boat racing is a great team sport and is enjoyed by millions of people every year.


Corporate Dragon Boat Events are a really effective team building activity for your work team and also a great way of providing your corporate clients with some fun. The activity makes everyone work as a team and this is the only way the boat will move efficiently. It is suitable for all ages and abilities and training is given beforehand.
