AUGUST 5TH AND 6TH, 2017

9AM START. MONTAGUE RIVER, PE

Dragon boats are the largest flat-water racing canoes in the world. A crew of 16-20 paddlers (minimum of 6 females) paced by a drummer at the bow and guided by a steersperson (provided by the festival) at the stern combine power and rhythm to achieve maximum acceleration and speed over a 200-metre course.

Dragon boating is unique in that total novices can compete with very little training or instruction. A perfectly synchronized team is not only visually spectacular but almost always defeats a stronger but less coordinated competitor.
