What is Dragon Boating?

Dragon boating is an traditional Chinese sport over 2000 years old. With a crew of 10-20 paddlers, a drummer, and a steersperson, each team paddles a boat over 40 ft long, weighing over a tonne typically in a race with 4-6 other boats. Dragon boating is currently the fastest growing water sport in the world.

As Barrie locals that grew up on Kempenfelt Bay, we know how much Barrie residents love Lake Simcoe. More than anything, we LOVE dragon boating, and we just want to share its magic with the community in Barrie.

Dragon boating is one of the few sports where in order to succeed- you must compete, work, and rally to meet your goals- together. It’s team building in it’s rawest form. Every single person is equally important and everyone has the same job- to paddle in unison. That’s why dragon boating is one of the best activities to foster communication, camaraderie, and confidence for your team – you work together, or you’ll end up in deep water!
